"Learn to Swim" (Trauma)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Overly familiar pop-punk that does nothing to stand out from all the others out there. These Australians rock just as smoothly and as safely as all the other Blink 182 clones but therein lies their curse as well. They sound just like all the other Blink 182 clones.

Tolerable but very dull.

Noogie: Nick Hyde - lead vocals, guitar; Chuck Ridler - Drums; Mike Jeffery - guitar; Alex Van Weneveen - bass guitar, backing vocals.
