American Hi-Fi: American Hi-Fi

American Hi-FiFeel good corporate pop rock isn’t really my bag, baby. Any number of utterances of the word “fuck” isn’t going to throw me off the scent and make me think I’m dealing with serious art here. American Hi-Fi tries to blend Weezer with any number of 80’s power pop metal bands. The end result is an underdeveloped, overproduced mish mash of boring pop and weak sing-along anthems. The formula is, well, formulaic. The irony is waist deep on the song “Hi-Fi Killer” on which they skewer radio rock and say it all sounds the same. Um, dudes, it’s time to check the man in the mirror.
