REVIEW: That’s Outrageous! – Teenage Scream

“Is that enough though? Is entertaining people with beats and riffs, just allowing them to escape for 30 minutes, enough to call something a “good record”? That isn’t something I can tell you.

If you need a hardcore-meets-party album to be the soundtrack of you Summer, this is it. Without a doubt, the most fun you’ll have with 808s and blast beats this season (if not the whole year).”
