The Butcher Brothers at first seem like a strange choice to produce Am I Pretty?, the first album by the modern Christian rock band Skypark. After all, the pair became famous through their work with Cypress Hill and Urge Overkill, two of the most hedonistic bands of the '90s. Nevertheless, the pair are professionals, and they're clean, muscular sound is perfectly-suited for modern rock radio -- and if Skypark are anything, they're post-alternative modern-rockers. Yes, there is an underlying religious theme to the music, but the streamlined punk-funk and alt-pop makes Am I Pretty? accessible to all listeners. There's a bit of a problem in terms of consistency -- not all of these songs have memorable hooks, but there are enough catchy tunes to make it a promising debut.
