A Solid Punk Album

"While it won't go down in history with And Out Come the Wolves..., Against the Grain, Punk in Drublic, or Dookie (nor will any Pennywise album), it is still one of the better albums of the modern punk age or whatever the hell you want to call it. To me, Pennywise is a cross between Bad Religion and NoFX in that they retain somewhat of a hardcore-edgy/semi-melodic sound but are also very drvien by more catchy, pop-like riffs and vocals. This album displays that sound very nicely, with some damn catchy and well-done tracks such as Peaceful Day, Every Single Day, and Killing Time.
The problem is that Pennywise is no where near the calibur of BR or NoFX, mainly because I think their sound is almost too straightforward and their lyrics too simple. And while I'm a huge fan of simplicity, this album just feels a little too plain. And as is the annoying thing with many punk records, all the songs sound the same. What makes it worse is that the track names are all very similar as well. But if you can get past that, I think this is a brilliant little album that is worth the pruchase for any fan of punk music"
