Album Review: All At Once by The Airborne Toxic Event

All At OnceIf you went to college in the 80's you had to know at least one person who was a big fan of The Alarm, or someone who was a big fan of that song "I Still Believe" by The Call.  Well I would venture to say that The Airborne Toxic Event have parents who are big fans and these guys grew up hearing this stuff, because this album seems so obviously inspired by this particular brand of 80's music.

For what the album is it isn't bad, but just as it is was with these bands in the 80's it can get to be a bit much over a full album.   

I listened to this the other morning while doing a bike ride and it was pretty fun, with the early morning sun and the whole world waking up around me.  This over the top anthemic rock worked quite well. 

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 2 out of 5 stars for Not Bad.
