My Darkest Days
Label: Mountain View Records / IDJ
My Darkest Days' debut album sounds like a cross between Nickelback and The White Tie Affair. In other words, these Canadian rockers make riff-a-licious post-grunge for the emo-pop dancefloor. If you're a woman with self-respect, you might want to sit this one out. More than a few tracks on this record, including the opener "Move Your Body" and the over-the-top lead single "Porn Star Dancing," are intensely sleazy. This is rock music tailor-made for three things only: Las Vegas gentlemen's clubs, stripper bars and late-night Madden NFL parties.
