VODKA JUNIORS: Suburban Core: CD

Strung Out meets Bad Town Boys with a dash of Youth of Today. It’s positive, skate boarder friendly, derivative, excellently executed, professionally tight, and didn’t do anything for me. If we were still in the mid-’90s, they’d fit opening a bill for No Use For A Name and Lagwagon. Melodicore is like this fifty-foot long sheet cake. The first few slices can be awesome, but if you have to try to eat the whole thing, that’s a fuckin’ chore. Sorry. It came all the way from Greece, too.
