Despite the flood of negative comments about Detroit, Michigan’s Fireworks on Twitter today, I do think this Fireworks album is better than I initially thought. It just took a few more listens to grow on me and sound like more than just a facsimile of New Found Glory. All I Have To Offer Is My Own Confusion is full of hardcore influenced pop punk that fans of (yes, you’re about to cringe) New Found Glory, early Fall Out Boy, or (perhaps) The Starting Line. The songs are melodic, catchy, good, and all that, if you like this sort of thing and way less hardcore than some. I initially wanted to say that they weren’t really all that great when compared to many of their peers, but it just took a few listens. Even so, I still don’t love All I Have To Offer Is My Own Confusion or find it really all that interesting. These guys could be huge as they’ve got that radio-ready sound that I’m sure all the kids love and the songs are uber-catchy . I don’t hate this, but it doesn’t blow me away. Perhaps my indifference and apathy towards this either means that I’m jaded or it’s just OK and nothing more.
