VARIOUS ARTISTS: If It Ain’t Cheap, It Ain’t Punk: CD

Jun 20, 2007

As with most compilation projects, this CD has moments of both brilliance and tedium. This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb open up the whole thing with “What I Want” which is a song so good that it actually makes me want to be optimistic, like, about everything. If I ate meat, I’d probably be irritated by the somewhat self-righteous “I Used to Be a Meat Eater” by Operation Cliff Clavin. However, I’ve been a vegetarian for sixteen years, and this song rules. Also a highlight is “Everything in the World” by the Sissies. This is a song that makes me feel like getting up in the morning. So really, this CD is worth it for its frequent moments of brilliance. The few generic folk-punk tracks that don’t really do it for me can be easily ignored.
