This is one gorgeously appointed package.
It looks and feels way cool. The strident chords and atonal
singing are the key elements, though the songs also follow
emo's abrupt contruction style. What really separates
Moviegoer from other bands is the way it incorporates
rythm into its pieces. The rythm guitar works wonderfully
in counterpoint to the bass and drum, providing a complexity
that most emo bands never bother to find. The consistent
quality of the songs elevates these boys from the mundane.
Wound up tight as a clock, but skilled enough to discharge
without exploding. The sort of tunes which make an immediate
impact on the phyche.

Moviegoer's debut full length, "64
FPS", is like the gift to the devil's eye in charge
of all storms and unnatural acts of which the men hurdle
without even breaking a sweat. Favorite tracks include
all twelve. Really. If you don't go and buy this CD just
for the silk-screened covers and glassine wrapper you're
stupid. They use all chords, milk and kids toys effectively.
If you dig Jawbox, certain tight technical elements like
Tool uses and hooky as music can be without being too
annoying. Then Moviegoer is your ticket.
