Synopsis

Amazon.com
Recorded after lead singer Milo Aukerman's first stab at higher "ed-you-kayshun," this giddy disc is considerably cleaner, not to mention friendlier,than the band's essential debut, Milo Goes to College. Not that they'dentirely turned into lapdogs: like the MMonkees, they had a theme son ("Descendents"); like Peter Pan, they expressed the sentiment in the title track. But more than anything else, the Descendents were punked-up heirs to Cheap Trick's legacy, albeit with a less-honed worldview. As with all discs from these guys (and their Siamese Twin, All), card-carrying feminists are advised to steer clear, but those who subscribe to the notion of laughing at others before they laugh at you will most assuredly feel comfy in these grooves. --David Sprague

CD Reviews

They lied, and grew up
The Ricker | Oakland, CA. United States | 09/20/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"They didn't wanna grow up but they did and made a more perfect album than even Milo goes to college. This album starts of with the song "Descendents" which pretty much tries and picks up the pieces after three years have gone by. Every song is amazing and even more so the band tried different tempos and styles and also Milo sings a lot more rather than screaming. I guess it might seem a lot more emo or whatever but it still has the passion that they always do and just really catchy songs. The only bad things are Frank Navetta is gone and that the song I dont want to grow up becomes very annoying after a few listens."
