Hiding their identities behind colorful ski masks have pop/punk outfit Masked Intruder bordering on the edge of self parody, but the quartet proves they are more than a gimmick with the release of second full-length ‘M.I.” Blue, Red, Yellow and Green have cobbled together an entertaining 13-track release that makes for a good listen even if you probably won’t be humming the songs after the CD stops spinning.

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}Opening tandem “I Foughtthe Law” and “The Most Beautiful Girl” get things off to a fast start, and Masked Intruder also score with “Crime Spree,” “When I Get Out,” “Almost Like We’re Already in Love,” “You’re the One” and “I Don’t Wanna Say Goodbye to You Tonight.” If pop/punk is your things after all these years, you’ll get a nice jolt out of “M.I.” (Jeffrey Sisk)
