Hot Like [A] Robot - Virginity Review

by Rob Nipe

Hot Like [A] Robot reminds me of a contemporary version of Burning Airlines. Burning Airlines is a group that sprang out of the ashes of Jawbox and had a great first album and-at least to me-kind of fizzled after that. Hot Like [A] Robot doesn't have the same strong a release with Virginity but there are some things that they do right. They used a strong rock sensibility to create pretty catchy songs. I don't think you'll run around town humming the songs but I could sit and listen to the whole album without wanting to die. That doesn't mean I wasn't frustrated though.

There is enough talent in the band to make something that flows better than this. The first song "Luxury" bounces back and forth between three different sections and there is a literal point in the song where it switches between them. It reminds me of how I looked at a map when I was younger. I expected the states to have literal lines that differentiated between them. Not to mention the colors. While I still expect that from my states, I don't like to have this in my music. Certainly not in almost every song. I want more from Hot Like [A] Robot but there is enough on this album to convince me to wait and see.
