98lb Weakling - Berlin Review

by Gary Schwind

.
98lb Weakling is a rock/power pop quartet from Los Angeles, featuring two members of Lifehouse. This six-song EP weighs in at just over 20 minutes and kicks off with the guitar-driven "American Jew," which declares "I'm an American Jew, Jesus doesn't love me now." It's a catchy song with some meaty guitar, reminiscent of The Flys.

Unfortunately, the rest of the EP provides more of the same. Each song seems to have the same formula. Acoustic guitar at the beginning, then a procession to distorted electric guitar and harmony vocals. The one exception is "Even Though" which remains pretty mellow throughout.

There is some good guitar work on this EP ("Hours," Live Forever"). However, all six of the songs sound pretty much alike. While there is nothing really wrong with this EP, I just get the feeling I've heard it before.


Note the EP is available only at iTunes. See buy link below
