DROPSKOTS, THE: More Seriouslyer: CD

These guys are staying true to their late ‘90s era pop punk influences on this CD. All thirteen tracks sound like a mash up of Blink 182 during their Cheshire Cat days and FenixTx with metal riffs dispersed throughout. There are plenty of anthem-swelling songs here, many of which are odes to laments about girls, a la track titles “Walking for Poontang” and “Forgetter.” With lyrics such as, “Burn down the bridge just for you/ no need to cross that misery,” I could see this music being in one of those new low budget American Pie flicks.
