don;t ready the jeremiah tucker review on THE CON...he clearly has no idea what he;'s talking about. "Over emotional music for 15 year old girls?"

The songs that have been avaible for stream of The Hair The TV the Baby and The Band (Do It Better and Shim Sham) are two of the best pop songs thus far of 2007.

I can't comment as I haven't heard all of the new imperial teen album, but I have heard The Con and the song Shim Sham alone transcends The Con by itself even if the rest of the hair the tv the baby the band is crapola.
