PRINCE: Self-titled: CD

In a perfect world, Tom DeLonge would not have strayed from his bleached-blonde hair and willingness to perform in his briefs to the pretentious front man of U2 tribute band, Angels And Airwaves. Sadly, we don’t live in a perfect world, but we do have bands like Prince to help fill the carefree, tongue-in-cheek pop punk void. The vocals are power-stanced firmly in the forefront, a practice I always appreciate. Sung nasally and loud, the lyrics aren’t poetry—but they don’t have to be. Sarcastic lines like “I’ll keep you forever in my…phone” had me laughing to myself. Recommended for the teenager in you who always wanted to crowd surf at Warped Tour.
