AllMusic Review by Bradley Torreano
The best way to describe Boy Hits Car, the sophomore effort from the band of the same name, is to combine the elements of a few of their contemporaries. Take the angst and urgency of At the Drive-In, toss in a dash of the playful singing style of System of a Down, and mix in the generic Korn-knockoff riffing of Hed(Pe). What you get is a band with a lot of good intentions and a great singer, but lacking in songwriting skills. Songs like "I'm a Cloud" drip with urgency due to the fantastic vocals of Cregg, but are easily forgotten due to the sadly pedestrian songwriting. The good news is that the band really does show a lot of potential, and at times that potential turns into real songs, like the trippy "Going to India." But the band still needs a lot of work, and this album is still pretty forgettable despite all the good elements. Fans of the aforementioned artists may want to give this a listen, but otherwise it probably would not go over well with others.
