MIXELPRICKS, THE: Pop Punk Is Dead: CD

The Mixelpricks make an album titled Pop Punk Is Dead, then proceed make fun of stuff while sounding like a pop punk band. “If I Had Two Wives” is one of the funnier songs that delivers some lyrical zingers such as, “If I had two wives, I would be busy most every night, I could go to my other nice wife if we fight.” This album reminds me of Reggie And The Full Effect because there are humorous songs that use irony, innuendos, and stereotypes to be funny. I think I understand the concept but the album as a whole, but just doesn’t keep me interested.
