Album Notes
Burn Disco Burn isn't a disco band. They're not an emo band. They're not even really a rock band. Or a new wave band. Or an alternative band. They're not a pop band, either, really. Or maybe they are. They're probably all of these things. They're too busy writing songs to care.

They have a wide range of influences. Death Cab for Cutie. New Order. The movie Chelsea Girls. REM. Radiohead. Weezer. Catherine Wheel. The Smiths. Yo La Tengo. Raspberry Italian sodas from that place on Washington Street.

They write songs about lots of things. Girls. Boys. Cars. Seasons. Roy Lichtenstein. They have an EP called "Crooked Hello" and an album called "I Love You and What You've Done to the Place" that comes out in May of 2002. There is a song on it about driving around an empty college town in the summer with all your windows rolled down. It's probably about you. At least the second verse is.

They play for their friends. They play for themselves. They play spin the bottle.

And all you can do is sit there and listen.

melodic alternative
The burning question about this CD – aside from its astonishingly-good songs and stellar musicianship – is just this: what mistake was made in the backseat of Johnny Morgan’s mother’s Jeep? This line from the ironic “Everything’s Fine” is par for lyricist Nick Burd who specializes in those cutting cryptic throwaway lines: “If I fall down I won’t get up/Because sometimes standing’s not enough” from “Me in Midair” and “I left a good thing down there/Because I wasn’t sure what it was good for” in the closer “I Always Finish What I Start.” Musically, “I love you and what you’ve done with the place” is melodic alternative somewhere around The Promise Ring and REM, especially the guitars on “Ringing,” “The Optimist Club,” and “If Anything Happens to Me, They’ll Come Looking for You.” About the only drawback is a tendency toward long songs, but luckily most of them are worth stretching out.

Virginia is for Gophers

i cannot eat or bathe without listening to it
Without this CD I could not breathe in the Earth's atmosphere. It is just short of holy. Try to stop listening to it- I dare you. Tell me "Ringing" and "I Always Finish..." aren't the perfect bookends to a flawlessly constructed pop gem of an album. All the tracks are spot on, and will stick around your person longer than the clap. Buy this now. Really. It will make you a smarter, beter person. Thanks.


Top 10 album of the year.
Simply put, this album is amazing. Burn Disco Burn may be under your radar at the moment, but with their new full-length, they won't be for long. I wanted to see what the buzz was about. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. I haven't had luck finding it in stores, so ordering on-line might be you best bet.


All of the songs are so great i cannot figure out which one my favorite is.
The CD rocks i cannot stop playing it over and over. my boyfriend never plays the same song over and over but on number six everything is fine he couldn't stop playing.
Just watch out or someone will come looking for you!
