Designing a Nervous BreakdownWelcome to the world of emo power-pop. Combining the whimsy of The Rentals and the typical Get Up Kids emoting, The Anniversary seem to go to the emo well a little too often, pulling out words like “scared” and “run” on a pretty regular basis. Manly? Not really. The first few songs seem original, but become less so as they slog through a very similar sounding second half.
