Heavy stuff here, complete with glam-rock guitar lick inserts and soft melodic breaks. On the subject of Steve Badiola’s voice: Screaming stuff like, “Tell me where it hurts” or “but now it’s killing me/I really hate myself” in the signature whiny emo voice, which Steve has mastered, can get pretty distracting. Which isn’t to say Infatuation sucks. It’s actually very decent—and, with a little bit of humor, quite entertaining. The title track and “Wait” should be early faves.
