Refreshing sounds from the rap genre

September 17, 2008

There are many treasures behind the crayon-scented cover of The Quilt. Although navigating a journey all too similar to As Cruel as School Children, the listener is refreshed by Gym Class Heroes’ unrivaled (genre specifically) loyalty to melody .
