Slapping his wife, bitching out his ex-hippie mom (while on LSD), praying for the death of all those around him â?¦ and that's just the first three songs. It sounds as if this is the natural next step of Marc Sidoreus' progression from witty, cynical acoustic musician to wizened, caustic acoustic musician. The lyrical glint that's been a hallmark of Sidoreus' previous work is still present ('I'm so sad/I've gotta write in my LiveJournalâ?�), but the raw venom it expresses is a little scary. On one hand the title track (from which that last little gem was taken) is a sniffling snub of melodramatic teenage angst, but it's equally a jealous paean to the ease with which a 15-year-old can move through this world. And it's got a soaring fake chorus that would make the Polyphonic Spree blush. While the days of 'Bubblegum Romanceâ?� are long gone, the bitterness Sidoreus is exploring these days is a little more entertaining.
