All Music Guide - Corey Apar
Oh, Boys Like Girls. With their eponymous debut for Red Ink, the Boston quartet marks its entry into the effervescent world of sugary, emo-blasted pop
ock. They've got the gleaming guitars, urgent vocals, and driving rhythms propelling three-minute ditties about their hearts, their girls, and those girls who just like to toy with their poor hearts. But unlike similarly styled bands, Boys Like Girls are largely lacking much of anything that could either separate them from the pack or, at the very least, give them more substance to appeal to more than just the teenaged girls who will be singing along enthusiastically at shows while secretly ...

Boys Like Girls are simply without the overwhelming catchiness of the All-American Rejects or the unbridled enthusiasm of the City Drive. Instead, listeners are left with an offering that is almost catchy and enthusiastic. Even the few standouts -- like the summer drive of "The Great Escape" and "Heels Over Head" -- will be pretty hard to recall by the lukewarm album's end. Regardless, those looking for a quick fix will surely eat up the likes of Boys Like Girls.

    Great boy band, awesome music

    I had first heard of Boys Like Girls while at a dance. I heard Great Escape and thought it was an awesome song. Totally danceable. I really loved this album. It is kinda pop rock. I strongly reccomend this album for popish, boy band, teens and, tweens!

    Colorful

    Happy, energetic, emotional...perfect. One of the best CDs I've heard in a long time with songs that anyone can relate to. From first loves and heartbreaks to leaving home and branching out on your own, this debut CD is something every music fan should have.

    Fabulous Musicians

    Great, great, great band. Martin Johnson has a terrific voice. I'd reccomend it for people looking for a change in the recent styles of hardcore emo stuff...this band is more of an indie, punk-pop band. Fun stuff, fun stuff.

    A Great New Band

    Even though this band is pretty undiscovered, they are amazing. They sort of sound like Cartel, yet are more punky in a way. Awesome CD.
