I Love You (But I Hate Your Friends)
Label: Mercury Records
Neon Trees make hi-surface glam-pop, and on their third album, they continue to offer up hook after shameless new wave-y hook. They even go so far as to rip from Taylor Swift's "Red" on "Unavoidable" and lay out big dilemmas as plainly and comically as those in "I Love You (But I Hate Your Friends)." Still, Pop Psychology is blessedly overstuffed with the type of contemporary glitz-rock that fits well right between bands like The Killers and Cobra Starship.
