The World's Most Painfully Average American Band

3.0 goodTheManMachine | July 17th 17

If you couldn't tell from dat title or the introductory faux audience cheers, they still ride the bratty-n-insouciant train pretty hard. Difference is now they've earned it; the cheers part at least. Most if not all 10 trax are a small step away from stadium-status punky power-pop, swaggerin' and distinguishable to boot -- making riffs+solos+hooks really count, honed performances all around, successful spectacle of solidity packed in at just over a half-hour. Tho will admit, they still got me feeling somewhat empty at the end of the day. Maybe if Esposito's tonsil-tone wasn't so treadmill.

Hell of a good time. Groovy and concise,
White Reaper deliver riffs and energy in


3.0 goodAaron | April 11th 17

Bands like Sheer Mag do vintage throwback rock sound real good and stuff. The songwriting and production styles White Reaper use here sound a little more like Franz Ferdinand than whatever they were going for.

White Reaper really should've named this record White Reaper Does It Again and name the following one White Reaper: The Gift That Keeps On Giving. The band gets some comparisons to Arctic Monkeys' more punkish sound, and as Arctic Monkeys moved on to more of a rock-oriented sound, so too does White Reaper, only twice as thought out and fun. They retain their sloppy and loud personality that they had on their debut, as well as their penchant for ridiculously catchy choruses. The punk spirit is certainly still there, but the sound has mostly been replaced by a surprisingly awesome mixture of glam and noise rock. There's a ton of energy here as well, and while the songs are a bit longer this time around, the songs are written and performed tighter than before. They're becoming one of the most consistently enjoyable bands in noisy pop rock/garage rock, so if that's you're thing, The World's Best American Band is a must hear.
