Ozma - Spending Time on the Borderline

I was disappointed with this album for two reasons. First of all, two of the songs on this album were demoed by Ozma several years ago (pre-Rock and Roll Part Three). "Game Over" and "Eponine" existed in more convincing forms before this album ever came out and made their release official. The second reason this album is a disappointment is that Ozma seems to have forgotten to step on the pedal that means metal. They have a reputation as a band that mixes heavy guitars with light melodies in a Weezer-ish way. They mess with the formula on Spending Time on the Borderline and it makes for a disappointing experience if you've been following Ozma through the years and have an expectation as to what an Ozma album should sound like.
