Voodoo Glow Skulls Steady As She Goes

If anything, this band deserves credit for the effort they've put in. Considering they've been around since the late '80s and the ska-punk thing has become considerably less fashionable lately, they still manage to make it sound good and fresh. A switch from Epitaph to Victory may signal that things haven't been too good recently but you won't get that from listening to this record. The 13 tracks on here are as energetic as anything they've ever done, with more bounce than a super ball. The horns crank up the intensity to a seizure inducing level that'll have you unable to sit still. Top it all off with a cool cover of Sam the Sham and Pharoahs' "Little Red Riding Hood" and you've got a good listen on your hands. (Victory)
