Guys who are not skinny should not take their shirts off on stage. I forgot to tell the bassist of Scouts Honor in my other review the same thing. I’m not letting these dudes off the hook, but I like this CD a lot better so I will move on. I dug their first record, but I think they went for the jugular here and the end result is blood all over the place. But nobody seems to be any worse for wear here. “Turning Seventeen” is a great tune that will bring you back to those wistful years—unless you are there now, then I don’t know what it will do to you. But turn it up and find out. “Maybe It Was Your Fault” is also a cool singalong. There’s an assload of good songs here, so buy this and choose your poison. Yum.
