"Repeat After Me" - Bully Puppet 

The song’s chiming guitars and build-and-release structure borrow equally from Thurston Moore and the Edge, but it’s “I’m free ’cause I’m me” message is straight-up PSA. The constant freedom references and the second-verse lyrics “I go to work, I pay my taxes,” threaten to take the song into Frank Stallone Rambo soundtrack power-ballad territory, but the band never emotes enough to inspire that kind of ridicule. Ultimately, “Repeat” plays like a blandish casserole of 1980s college rock radio (hold the synthesizers) topped with too much cheese.
