MCRACKINS: It Ain’t over Easy: CD

Jul 29, 2010

I can’t tell you how excited I was to get this in my reviewables this time around. Vancouver’s McRackins have been a longtime favorite of mine and I had been looking forward to hearing this new record. For those of you not in the know, the McRackins are Canadian pop punk legends, having started out in 1994 or so and have released (literally) countless records over the years. Here we are in 2010 and the McRackins are back! It Ain’t over Easy is an amazing record that fits in perfectly with the mountain of records in their storied past. Tight hooks and melodies that would have Joey and Dee Dee tapping their toes in their graves and lyrics that will have you either laughing out loud or singing along in the shower or the car at top level. Two eggs and a dog win again! Now get cracking and beat it down to the record store and pick this up! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist it!).
