DAMNIT JIMS, THE: Just Punk Enough: CD

The Damnit Jims play really solid pop punk with a few toes creeping over the hardcore border. Vocals are delivered aggressively, but with occasional moments of delicious awkwardness that take just the right amount of edge off of the aggression. And the guitars sound like chainsaws eating a sofa—nice! Lyrically, the fruit does not fall far from the tree, either: songs about everyday life from the perspective of an aging outsider. Good stuff all around, and one of my new favorites. I had to gush over the Damnit Jims and use them as an example in my grammar class today, which means that I like the record a whole fucking bunch.
