AllMusic Review by

Emocore and Nintendo: two of the essentials if you're a teen in Elmhurst, IL. Boylion's cover art and awkwardly long album title are references (perhaps props?) to the Nintendo video game system, but they've obviously been spending more of their time crafting enthusiastic emo. Unfortunately, the guitars overpower the keyboard, and you're left wondering what else that instrument could do for the band besides adding sound effects and occasional melodies. These kids are still very young, though, so there's plenty of room to grow. Hear them roar.
