Oh No Not Stereo 3

Oh No Not Stereo 3
I hate to ruin the dream for a whole generation but Doc and Marty were wrong in thinking that time travel necessarily involved a DeLorean and a flux capacitor. All you need is the latest Oh No Not Stereo album and you're magically whisked back to a time when pop punk ruled the world and it was ok to be a melodramatic teenager. Track names like "Shot Down by the Man" and "Miss Hard Time" bring back all those feelings of unspecific rage at the world and encompassing self-pity at your own romantic misfortunes. This is music made for Tony Hawk Xbox games and late '90s uni-parties, the melodic vocals giving way to half-arsed screams at the chorus and power chords laden with effects. It wouldn't be too bad if it wasn't so out of date but then again, if you can prove time travel exists, you've got at least something to brag about. (Independent)
