Endless Summer: CD
Okay, one of my favorite bands is Against Me!, who write about touring a lot. But they write about it on a conceptual level, not a descriptive one. Hell, even I am writing a book on touring, but it will be a how-to guide with specific anecdotes. But the first song on this album is such a by-the-numbers tour song it irks me. Do you form a band to write songs about being in the band you formed to write songs about being in a band? Sorry, just a pet peeve. I was listening to this CD in my car with two people. One thought these guys were Blink 182. The other thought they were Weezer. Personally, I think they remind me of Groovie Ghoulies, but the latter seem a lot sillier and artsier than these guys and in any case, I don’t know how many people know the Ghoulies enough to make the comparison worthwhile. But the Ghoulies’ concept seems more a product of the band’s evolution while this sounds more pre-determined. Actually, the more I think about it, these guys remind me more of the Beach Boys than anything. Maybe they’re a bit harder, what with the advance of time and all, but still, yeah, a rocking Beach Boys. By now it sounds like I probably didn’t like this CD, but I kinda did. It’s a fun album, the way that pizza is usually good and parties are usually fun, but having finished this review, I am not too sure it will be back on my radar again unless I wind up running into the band. –rich (Fast Music)
