Just when you thought all hope was lost, here come The Get Up Kids with their album Guilt Show to save heartfelt, guitar-based pop-rock from oblivion. Equally catchy and diverse, The Get Up Kids' fourth long player showcases the excellent songwriting that sets the band apart from most of their contemporaries. That ability to float meaningful, relatable lyrics over insistent keyboard and guitar lines--not to mention their relentless national touring with bands like Green Day, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World and At The Drive In--has earned them a devoted following of people who care deeply about music. These people know great rock songs are still being made.

Muze PNote After gaining the attention of the ever-growing emo-rock crowd in the late-1990s with their first two fiery indie-rock albums, Kansas City quintet the Get Up Kids abruptly turned on their heels with ON A WIRE, a record packed with bouncy, multi-layered, and provocative tunes. Taking yet another step along the line from emo icons to pop artisans, the group next unveiled the wonderfully crafted GUILT SHOW, an intelligent, full-bodied, and hook-laden record.
Muze PNote GUILT SHOW's opening track, "Man of Conviction," embodies their transformation, starting with the time-honored indie-punk sound and fury, but throwing in a dizzy piano and some odd jazz deconstructions before collapsing into the ultra-tuneful "The One You Want." On "Holy Roman," the Kids wax political using just the right pop know-how combined with an oblique edge. A jaunty piano riff opens "In Your Sea," descending into an appealing 1970s-ish bounce, and then into a subtle orchestral finale. An unpredictable yet immensely appealing pop ride, GUILT SHOW reveals the Get Up Kids to be a constantly maturing and always-intriguing rock outfit.

Producer: Ed Rose

Spin (4/04, pp.91-3)
- "[I]n its embrace of messy and painful reality, it may be their deepest." - Grade: B

Entertainment Weekly (3/5/04, p.68)
- "[T]he Kids are back to their playful selves with GUILT SHOW, which counters adult reflection with bubbly keyboards." - Rating: B

Magnet (p.94)
- "[W]ith ragged guitar and booming drum sounds engineered to kill on your local 50,000-watt flamethrower of a modern-rock station."

Spin Magazine 7 of 10
Ultimately, Guilt Show feels about as transitional as its predecessor; Pryor has stripped the cutene
