LINK: The Kids Are Alright: CD

Aug 14, 2009

I don’t know why I’m such a sucker for any punk rock that comes from Japan, but I am. I’m willing to overlook hand claps (which this album has) and references to the Who in the album title, and I’m willing to only give a passing notice to the obvious Op Ivy/Green Day/Ramones influence, because no matter what barbs the critic within me wants to let loose, I can’t ignore the fact that these are fun songs. They have me bouncing around the room and smiling, and every time I play this album, I feel a little bit happier for having heard it. I could call this a guilty pleasure, but fuck that. It’s just a rockin’ album.
