AVERAGE TIMES: Self-titled: CD

Canadian punks Average Times remind me of my attitude as a teen, nothing is the matter but I’m really worked up about it. These are head-bobbing songs about high school excess and having a good time late into the summer night. Musically, it’s solid but most of the lyrics get lost in the heavy reverb; this might cover-up for bad vocals, but, come on, don’t be shy. I want to be able to sing along but instead I’m only able to tap my toes to the beat. Overall, not bad. It seems like everyone is partying in Ottawa.
