AllMusic Review by

U.S. Crush's self-titled debut album introduces their aggressive but melodic style of modern rock. Songs like "Bleed," "Loser," and feature the slick productions, big guitars, and engaging harmonies that make hit singles; occasionally unfortunate lyrics like "Jimmie crack rock and I don't care" distract from the immediate, kinetic rush of the group's sound, but singer Denny Lake's charismatic vocals smooth over such rough spots. Too polished to be truly punk, U.S. Crush nevertheless maintains a raw, catchy urgency on this well-crafted first effort.
