It's been years since The Juliana Theory broke up. During the long hiatus fans have been waiting for a new offering from lead singer Brett Detar, but something deep down inside me sure is a thinkin' they won't be expecting the songs that compromise Bird In The Tangle to have musically taken such a direction as this. It's time to turn in your emo hair for shit kickers!
This Brooklyn based trio and their sophomore album 'The Other Side of Zero' is an exceptional follow up to their first effort, Taller Children. The new batch of songs hum along gently, most of which are heart wrenching numbers, while other tunes would make even the loftiest of pop princess' nod their head in respect.

Remember when Zach Galifianakis said he was going to name his balls "Belle and Sebastian"?
“Where is the best place to dance in California? San Fran-DISCO!” The joke was met with thunderous applause and ear splitting screams.

Expectations can only go so far without making us go crazy. Luckily I had no expectations for this album and by doing so made it possible for Invented to take hold as they haven't been able to do since their Clarity days. What I would love to see for the future of Jimmy Eat World. Drop their major label, and lets see what their music can really do. I only think good things could come of it. In the meantime, Invented is an alternative rock masterpiece!

"The guys in The Acorn are nicer than most of the bands you think you like, and are great at playing lots of drums on stage together. Their new album is called No Ghost and it's 11 songs long, or short, if you are into having the glass half empty."
