CHARISMATICS, THE: Self-titled: CD

This is melodic high-energy pop punk that’s as smoothly polished as a freshly minted 25-cent piece! The Charismatics perfectly create a frenetically pulsating sonic collage containing some of the most complex harmonies and intricately textured melodies that’s ever jubilantly leapt into my ears. It’s a stunning, powerful, and energetically unrelenting release solidly similar to several of the sugary-sweet punk boy wonders on the Fat Wreck Chords roster… so if ya prefer your punkrock unruliness with a delectable dose of giddy goodtime poppiness, then I thoroughly recommend the harmonious hi-jinks of The Charismatics. This disc is damn good all the way down to the very last ditty!
