Season Of Poison - Mediocre, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 60
Based on rating 6/10

Shiny Toy Guns' sophomore effort sheds some of the retro appeal that fueled the band's first record, We Are Pilots, in favor of a dark electronica/rock hybrid that recalls Evanescence and the melodic side of Linkin Park. Female singer Sisely Treasure makes her debut with the group, having replaced the departing Carah Faye Charnow several months before the album's release, and her vocals brim with the energy of an aggressive cheerleader. Such rhythmic scream/singing provides a nice contrast to Chad Petree, who handles the bulk of the album's melodic vocals.

Review Summary: What happened?Though We Are Pilotswas hardly a brilliant effort on the part of Shiny Toy Guns, it was a decidedly entertaining venture into modern synthpop. The likes of "Don't Cry Out" and the Killers-eqsue "Rainy Monday" and "You Are the One" were each mesmerizing cuts, and are still worth revisiting every now and then. All three versions of We Are Pilots(!) did feature a few filler tracks, and true to the group's synthpop roots, the album did get cheesy at times.
