This album blew my mind. The entire album is a nod to the fathers of punk. Meaning, when you hear this album, you can hear hints of Dead Kennedys and Black Flag. Even the tone of this guy’s voice will bring you to Seattle circa 1985.

The album starts off with the starling title track and is followed by “Nothing Else Matters (When I’m With You).” This is a cute little punk love song. A song of two social outcasts finding each other. “Won’t you tell me I’m the bomb? Cuz I’m a mess when I’m alone.”

“Please Feel Free” is the one semi-acoustic track on this album.  This album may have several love songs but they are all lovely and worthwhile listens. “Please feel free to visit me when you are a lonely girl in need of me. “

Another memorable track off this album is “Todayo.” This is another cute song about young bashful love. The memorable part of this song is the impressive guitar playing.

“Radio” is the second to last track on the album. To me, it’s the most reminiscent of the punk bands of days gone by.
