NOFX: Coaster: CD

Twenty-six years is a long fucking time to still be releasing records, touring, and binging on drugs and alcohol. I will be the first to admit that I wouldn’t be at all be surprised if this wasn’t the last NOFX record. I took the title of “So Long and Thanks for All the Shoes” literally when it came out and was sure they were calling it quits. Now it seems that I’d be surprised if they didn’t release anything new. I use the term “new” loosely because there really isn’t anything new going on here. Fast songs: check. Songs about being loaded: check. Songs with horns: check. If anything, one of the only things that I don’t remember from previous albums is the excessive name dropping of friends’ bands. It gets pretty annoying. Also included are pictures of the band members as kids that leads me to believe that they all had pretty normal, happy childhoods. Man, what happened?
