1990s - Cookies
1990s debut Cookies was lauded by all the prestigious media outlets in 2007. NME, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork-they all relayed the same message: 1990s is a witty and wild rock and roll band that draws comparisons to legends like The Strokes and The Rolling Stones. I have no explanation for the misguidance of those reviews, but I am without hesitation to write that Cookies is a dreadful album. 1990s have the swagger of an 80's hair-metal band (a la Guns N Roses)-an attitude manifesting in the album's cursory production and tactless lyrics, like on "Enjoying Myself," "And now I'm here with my friends and we're taking some drugs / It's such fun we'll be taking some more soon / I just like enjoying myself." 1990s is just as crass musically, with their seemingly endless repetition of lyrics and abrasive vocals. Combined this formula makes for some of the most overhyped music I've ever encountered, but since I can't alter the press, I can only warn potential listeners not to waste their time with this sophomoric effort.
