Get Scared’s debut LP, Best Kind of Mess, was released this past July on Universal Motown Records. The songs, raw yet polished, evoke images of lead singer Nicholas Matthews crouched in a corner scribbling lyrics feverishly onto a pad. Many say this album was a cry for help (following Matthews’ crisis this past August). Intense messages aside, the sound quality is spectacular compared to their EP, Cheap Tricks and Theatrics, thanks to a greater guitar presence. Pick it up.
