Diet Cig are hard to classify as a pop punk band, yet they manage to take the best of both genres and fuse them into a sound that makes for a short and sweet – yet no less fun – record. And fun is just how this record is best described; it is not genre pushing, the duo aren’t trying to impress anyone with their debut album. Instead Diet Cig made a short record, filled with little stories and ideas in the form of up-beat and simple songs that you can have a good time listening to without having to put too much thought in. This album is lighthearted and enjoyable to listen to, and allows the duo to show their personalities while staying reserved enough to not overstay their welcome.
