TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET: Stay Rad!: CD

This one didn’t reinvent the wheel either, so if you already know and don’t enjoy the brand of Ramones-core that TBR provides, stay away I guess. Now, for those true punks that stuck around for this review, let me stick it to ya straight. I didn’t love the last few Bottlerocket releases, but this is my favorite since Warning Device. Yes, I think it’s ultimately a stronger album than They Came From the Shadows, but I never was a huge fan of the singles on that one. There’s nothing in here that will surprise you, but by this point if TBR isn’t a warm blanket to return to with every new record, I don’t think there’s any winning you over. Their strongest in years. –Gwen Static (Fat, fatwreck.com)
