Teenage Bubblegums In Limbo Punk Rock Theory

On their third album, Italy’s Teenage Bubblegums burn through ten songs in 15 minutes with plenty of pop sensibility, but decidedly less variation. They do know how to write a solid, crunchy punkrock song though that is as melodic as it is dark. Also, the dual male/female vocals work decidedly well.

Unfortunately they really did write just that one song. They then recorded it nine more times and called it a day. Every single song on here sounds exactly like the one before it. Well, except for the opening track. Not that that one sounds different, it’s just that there isn’t a song preceding it.

Seeing as they called the album ‘In Limbo,’ a state in which nothing happens or changes for a long time, I’m thinking they maybe did this on purpose as some kind of statement? If so, I’m still not sure why though. Definitely a band that is capable of more than what they are doing here.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
