Scamper - Leave Your Glasses On
By Eric Bodrero

The album debut Leave Your Glasses On from Boston’s own Scamper rocks with a certain energy that’s missing in most of today’s overplayed radio hogs, clogging up the airwaves like week old gravy down the kitchen sink. Scamper’s sound is clean and tight and engineered to minute perfection, belting out power-pop anthems such as “Sophie”, “Over And Over”, and “Escaping Flatland” that would make fifteen year rock veterans jealous. 

Pleasant harmonies, infectious melodies, sweetened guitar hooks, and raw, youthful energy blend together to give Scamper a highly polished sheen that blinds you like the glare from a piece of sheet metal in the sun. So what’s the problem here? This stuff should have rocked on for at least fifteen more minutes, but rather, abruptly ends barely a half an hour into it, leaving you feeling apprehensive and shorthanded, wanting more and quietly swearing to yourself. 

However, that’s exactly what Scamper wants: to give you a taste of good things to come, and wanting only to kick your eardrums in, rock you hard for thirty minutes, get the job done, and get the hell out, leaving you anxious for more material. Let’s hope that inevitable material can equal the brilliance and power of Leave Your Glasses On
