The Exploding Hearts, ‘Guitar Romantic’ (2003). The giddiest power-pop album of the Aughts comes with one of the saddest postscripts imaginable. Formed in the Pacific Northwest, the Exploding Hearts were just solidifying a rep for their 2003 debut, Guitar Romantic, when three of the four members were killed in a car accident coming back from a gig. The band left behind infectious blasts like "Modern Kicks" and "Sleeping Aides and Razorblades," led by departed singer/guitarist Adam Cox's blithe spirit.
Immediately, after starting up Guitar Romantic, listener’s are graced with two of the strongest songs in the Heart’s repertoire; 'Modern Kicks' and 'I’m a Pretender'. Both songs are an explosion of raw punk energy, vicious pop hooks and delicious rock riffs. Of course, the songwriting and lyrics are equally as catchy, energetic and raucous as the instrumentation. Following what may be two of the most timeless and explosive expressions of youth via punk and pop fare, the album eases up while still remaining catchy.
