i think they are a cool band. They have some very catchy pop/rock tunes that are pretty good... If you like the single "get over it" i think they are worth checking out...

My friend just reviewed one of their albums for the college radio, and said it was really good, but I haven't had an opportunity to listen to it yet. I don't know which album it was; I think it had a pink cover and the last song was used every 5 minutes on MTV to promote the last episode of the latest Real World. (Went something like "Bye Bye Baby...bye bye")

I saw them open up for the Cranberries in Chicago in May and even though they are a Chicago band I had never heard of them before. My wife and I were impressed enough to buy one of their EPs in the t-shirt booth and met the bassist and lead singer outside the venue. Definately can be descrided as 'Power Pop', there are some many of these bands popping up nowadays.

Their CD got a decent review and article in the new Blender (Pink on the cover.)

I would definately check them out if you like this type of music, great to see a Chicago band getting played nationwide. Looks like they have some serious label backing since their video was directed by some big name director who's name escapes me. They had very good live show and I liked almost everything they played.

I saw them open for the Vines this summer and found them a bit too jokey...
