It's been written that Les Savy Fav is the one band that is going to save rock & roll. These expectations may be a little overboard, but Rome (Written Upside Down) still provides a energetic slab of hyper post-punk. Stretching from the bass-driven sing-a-long romps of "I.C. Timer" and "Hide Me From Next February" to the robotic paced title track, Les Savy Fav's originally might not be able save a particular genre, but it'll inspire a generation of bands to experiment out of the standard rock structure.
