Just because a band features a former member of the Descendants doesn't necessarily mean that one should expect some nerdy, angst-ridden punk who obsesses over girls and coffee. At least in the case of For Love Not Lisa, the angst is still there, but there's more of a melodic aggression that has a resemblance to Seaweed and Quicksand as the vocalist practically shouts his way through both "Good Intentions" and "Hallowed Be." Yet, despite the obvious inspirations, For Love Not Lisa maintains their own catchy sound that should have gone beyond the small following they had while they were still together.
