3.5 greatBallsToTheWall | June 16th 10

On the scale of zazz from 1 - 10 Fixed At Zero ranks at 6/10. It just lacks....zazz. The lack of big hooks, and standout moments really de-jazz the whole affair. If only VersaEmerge put the zazz train to zazzville, then this would be a star studded evening of zazz.

2.5 averageJaycieLynn | December 4th 10

Average is probably more than this album deserves. After originally hearing their self-titled EP, I was excited for this full-length, and then I listened to it. The vocals weren't as haunting, the music itself took a step backwards, and the lyrics? It seems like they didn't try. But, for modern pop-punk, it's not complete garbage.

2.5 averageTheHung89 | July 10th 16

Don't understand how this band is considered experimental even in the slightest. The little electronic parts
don't justify that.

Sounds like pretty basic alternative rock with some solid, catchy vocals here and there. Pretty dull listen as a
whole.

4.0 excellent3waycrash | February 18th 16

Fixed at Zero follows and expands the sound of VersaEmerge's style of theatrical alternative rock (ala Tim Burton-esque music mixed with pop rock). The album has a mystical and even mysterious feel to it that stands out in the genre. Along with the magical music, singer, Sierra Kusterbeck matches the tone of each song with great and strong vocals. It's too bad that after finding their footing the band never continued with this sound.

4.0 excellentJared Floryan | April 30th 15

Fixed at Zero leaves more of a lasting impression than one might be led to believe. What pop rock band VERSA (known at the time as VersaEmerge) lack in songwriting abilities - which aren't truthfully lacking, per se - they easily make up for with gorgeous production values, dreamy instrumentation, and frontwoman Sierra Kay's alluring vocals to go along with her precious looks. It also helps that many of the tracks themselves are as earworm-y as they are a giant mirror left in the middle of a forest signifying only purification. A surprisingly powerful debut that strong-arms me into desiring more material from these guys, VERSA honestly didn't belong on the Fueled by Ramen label at the time Fixed at Zero was first released.

Boasting powerful females vocals, catchy hooks and infectious choruses that one would expect from the genre, VersaEmerge's debut album will turn some heads and give them an establishing role in the pop punk genre, the beautiful album production only adds further to this observation.

4.0 excellentIsaacbean | May 6th 11

Whenever I think about/listen to this band, I think about Tim Burton having sex with Paramore. 'Nuff said.

4.0 excellentAlexTM510 | July 19th 10

Fixed At Zero strangely will take a few listens to absorb due the absence of the post-hardcore type sound. Instead they take the route of a pop sound that suggests that their listening to more Imogen Heap than that other band you love to compare them to. And to even put more shock to it this album all together outdoes everything they do.

I can't see this being rated classic when it isn't even out yet...ANYWAYS...
