All Killer Hooks and No Floaters
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 23/04/2011 11:33:25
17 years and 11 albums in with splinter groups and solo projects supping from the creative Well could be cause for concern for fans of lesser bands than Bowling For Soup. For the band itself the biggest challenge must have been how to follow up what is arguably their finest - and criminally under-marketed - work 2009s Sorry For Partyin.
Which makes Bowling For Soups latest Fishin For Woos all the more triumphant. For this is one seriously freakin awesome album!
With their patented brand of feelgood sing-alongs laugh out loud asides and sucker punch tenderness theres everything for the devoted and plenty to win over new fans.
Turbulence and What About Us pack a lyrical and emotional punch that in any just world will see the boys back in their Grammy nominee Tuxes. Nestled between the frankly freakin hilarious sit-comedy of Heres Your Freakin Song and instant classic BFS singles Friends Chicks Guitars and S-S-S-Saturday - Fishin For Woos is packed with killer hooks (groan!)
Impossible to choose a favourite track Woos plays out with the instant charm of a Greatest Hits album or the soundtrack to the best John Hughes movie never made. Its summer in a CD - a pants party for your ears.
Fantastic to finally have Guard My Heart committed to record the only gripe is - no new Belgium and without the usual grab-bag of additional tracks - its all over too soon!
Still with recorded offerings from the wider BFS stable - People On Vacation and Erik Chandler & the Mulberry St. Socialites still to come this year musically - 2011 is - well - whatever we are now substituting Winning with.
Whatever Bowling For Soup are drinking, pour me a large one!
