  • The third full-length from punk-pop quartet the Starting Line hones the group's fizzy mixture of pop hooks, emo expressiveness, and chugging rock assault. Lead-off tracks "Direction" and "21" are fine examples of TSL's energetic, melody-heavy blast. Produced by Grammy-nominated studio ace Howard Benson, DIRECTION gleams like the major-label release it is, but maintains plenty of the group's youthful, alternative, ear-snagging vigor. This is a record for summer: heavy and hard enough to rock out to, but light and bright enough to invite a singalong.

Professional Reviews
Spin (p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] has its compelling moments, thanks in large part to likably corny singer Kenny Vasoli."

Alternative Press (p.168) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[O]n DIRECTION, Vasoli & Co. prove they're more than capable of crafting flawless pop-punk songs that should appeal to anyone with a pulse."

Alternative Press (p.128) - "[I]f only more bands wrote songs as good as '21' and 'Something Left To Give.'"
