VARIOUS ARTISTS: Open 24 Hours: CD

I haven’t seen a comp like this in a while: one that isn’t a label sampler so much as an audio blue print. Still, it’s all pretty much just straight-up pop punk with a few pleasant surprises. I don’t think there’s anything particularly hard to find or unreleased, and it gets to be a little much for me at times. But, if you’re one of those “I only like Lookout! and Mutant Pop” types, then this should be right up your alley.
