Review: Boysetsfire – The Misery Index

Another half-hearted attempt to prove nu-metal isn’t dead by adding sophomoric acoustic refrains, whiny power ballads or pointless samples to the landscape of paint-by-numbers distortion.

Even the angry pre-teens the group’s courting may think these guys are hacks.

Favorite track: “So Long … And Thanks For the Crutches”

Grade: D – Jetty, Spring 2006
