A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the CD offers intense, straight-ahead rock & roll: interesting, well-performed, and almost squeaky-clean. The one use of the "F" word is on a spoken-word interlude, a recording of a message on someone's answering machine. Your teens could do a lot worse than listening to this CD.

What's the story?
Lostprophets deliver palatable, infectious rock & roll on START SOMETHING. Except for a couple of self-indulgent metaphorical death and fire references (\"Just say 'Will you starve with me?'/With your life, bring it to an end\" on \"Hello Again\"; \"Cause if it's no good/Burn burn the stations/We'll burn it down/Burn burn the truth\" on \"Burn, Burn\"), the lyrics are intense without being scary or offensive. They also somehow project a gentle message of social consciousness without actually saying much of anything at all. The one use of the \"F\" word is on a spoken-word interlude of a message on someone's answering machine, an overused ploy and/or gratuitous private joke that doesn't really work. Other than that, this is good clean rock & roll from a band that seems to be here to stay.
Is it any good?
