JUKEBOX ROMANTICS, THE: Self-titled: CD

Jul 29, 2010

Rock and roll punk that I imagine is made by guys who hang out in Irish bars, have spider-web elbow tattoos, and wear newsboy caps. It’s okay, in a not as good mid-period Bouncing Souls sort of way, mixed with latter day Dropkick Murphys, a bit of ska, and with a too restrained sounding singer. It really bothered me that this came with a parental advisory sticker. Why would you put those on your album, especially since it’s not 1996 and you’re not on a major label?
