The Scene's Out of Sight (Self-Starter Foundation)

By: Alex Steininger

The Actionslacks' The Scene's Out Of Sight is one of the best albums of 2001. Capturing teen-angst, growing up, and the aging process in one big swoop, lyrically it's one of the most inviting, sing-along collections of tunes that has come around in a long time. Musically, it is quite similar. It delivers charged pop anthems capable of mesmerizing you within only a few bars. The contradiction between guitar-driven power-pop and a few acoustic lost-love ballads gives me the feeling this is one of those albums that comes strong out of the gates, keeps building, and eventually settles down with a nice underground following. Leaving the mainstream in the dark, much to the happiness of the indie kids who use the album as their daily bible. I'll give it an A+.
