The Bones - Burnout Boulevard
Some guys who appear to be 30+ with bad hairdo and cheesy nicknames. Hmm…what to think of this? Oh well, we’re only judging music here! But the thing is, when I’m 30+ and have a cheesy nickname, which I will definitely have, I kinda wanna make a little better music and kinda wanna be a little better at playing my instrument than I am right now. 

The Bones delivered an album that is not particularly bad. It’s just not any better than the other 10,000 bands that make albums like these, and these bands mostly are doing a debut EP. This is The Bones’ fourth studio album… So is it really that bad? Hell no! It’s a nice background album, when smoking weed and playing videogames with your homeboyzz…But that’s about it. Don’t go looking for musical high lights here, It’s just simple four bars-couple o’ chords guitar work and bass/snare/bass/bass/snare type o’ drummin’, with a barely noticeable bassline. The guitar solos are a welcome variation, but don’t go expecting Slash or Zakk Wylde. 

All in all it’s a pretty easy listener with no highs and no real lows. Burnout Boulevard (Am I the only one seeing a Boulevard of broken dreams rip off here?!) is pretty much the same from “Mighty Touchdown” until “Fit My Skin”. Nothing more, nothing less...
