DUI-WOP] Who is Masked Intruder? Did their candied harmonies really coalesce during shared prison stints? Or, as some cynics have suggested, did the frontmen of faded pop-punk combos join forces on a side project lark that turned out rather more successful than anyone could have dreamt? Their eponymous debut for Fat Wreck Chords reveals a delirious enthusiasm for singalong choruses spiraling toward self-parody, as the members admit past passions led them to inevitably overstep that thin line between romantic obsession and stalking the objects of their affection. Trenchant humor building through successive paeans toward knife-wielding courtship, there's a genuine sentimentality cutting through the giddiness—one can't so easily pull a ski mask over the human heart.
