Brookside: Tonight, Long Island (Panic)
release: September 26, 2006
styles: Emo, punk-pop
similar: Taking Back Sunday, New Found Glory, All American Rejects, the Movielife
rating: ***

These bands are a dime a dozen these days, but let's give credit to Brookside (not to be confused with another Long Island pop-punk emo band Bayside) because they HAVE at least been around since 2001, and, even though it's much of the old cliche lyrics about leaving suburbia and relationships and riffs we've all heard before, the band is professional, tight, and slightly above average quality of any other similar band listed on a 17-year-old girl's list of music in their myspace profile. -Kenyon
