Fifty-Thousand Moments (Cargo)
by Scott Hefflon

"Exploding" out of Canton, OH and releasing three records most of us are unfamiliar with, the three-piece Sparechange00 deserve a lot better. Sounding like they come from more of an indie rock/power pop background than a punk background (punk weened on punk is getting further and further from its rock roots, ya know?), this five-song EP might pack the punch of the first time you heard the Goo Goo Dolls (don't want to go as far as Elvis Costello or Hüsker Dü, cuz let's be realistic, huh?) and realized mid-tempo paces and the right chords supporting a powerful, passionate vocal line could be pushed harder than punkpop's spastic flailings. Perhaps the kids'll understand if I compair this to "emo/punk" like Boxer, Saves the Day, The Ataris, and Avail, though not as "kiddie sounding" as some of those bands.
