Delusions of Grandeur is an album from the nerd punk band HYPERSPACE. ”Delusions of Grandeur” is comprised of thirteen nerdy pop punk songs about Star Wars, girls, pop culture, breakups, and other nerdy stuff. I got a request to review their album months ago and I am just now getting to it. Sorry guys I am just slow like that.
The album has several nerdy such as wondering if the new Star Wars movie will be any god (Episode 7), tributes to both the Borg and Darth Vader, singing about Chewbacca in Vegas, and summarizing the Goonies movie. They also have several songs singing about women who they love; Avril Lavigne, Barbara Gordon, Paula (Abdul), Carrie Fisher, and Rave Girl which is about a generic raver. They have interesting taste in women a.k.a. same as me. It also contains a cover of Nirvana’s “School” from their Bleach album and two strange little songs marked with parental advisory (Screeching Weasel and Untitled).
The album has a nice punk rock sound. Kind of unrefined but still well put together. Though all the songs do sound very much the same, so if you like one song you will must likely like them all. I do recombine checking it out.
HYPERSPACE was formed in Atlanta, GA in 2011. Their musical influences include Nerf Herder, Green Day, Nirvana, and Weezer. The album is available for purchase through iTunes, Amazon, CdBaby, GooglePlay, bandcamp and Spotify.
