“It’s not an earthquake in Hooksett, New Hampshire, it’s the release of a nine-song CD by the area’s favorite sons, Borderline Eleven. Outside of some acoustics, as on the final track “2 A.M.”, the group offers a non-stop onslaught of heavy guitar battling spitfire vocals of Dan Charpentier (who also plays rhythm). The riffs are inventive and the four band mates – backing vocalist/drummer Andy Mason, backing vocalist/bassist Joe Campbell and lead guitar/backing vocalist Luke Mason – do have a sound that shows the potential to blossom in a great way.”

“NH punks inspire with debut record - Borderline Eleven has pieced together an impressive debut album full of audible angst, head pounding guitar and strong lyrics.”

“Wait Outside” is a sing-able anthem with a distinctly pop sound, while “Sweet Beginnings and Sour Endings” provides an uplifting point of view on life’s disappointments. Breakups inspire tearing guitar breakdowns throughout the album, while new relationships are the subject of the earnest acoustic ballad “2 A.M.””
