Farewell, My Love on first listen sound like the illegitimate child if My Chemical Romance, HIM and Panic! At The Disco were to have combined in some form. Moving swiftly away from that disturbing thought, the word that instantly comes to mind once you’ve listened to ‘Gold Tattoos’ is derivative. It really is difficult to get through this record without comparing every song to a band who have been around in the last ten years. This post-modernism is without any wit or worthwhile irony; we can all forgive a band like Steel Panther because their brand of mock-rock is both wittily delivered and fun. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for this Phoenix quintet.
