Album Review

Reviewed 2003-06-12
The Feldmans "Fear for the Future" - Here is another album from Redwood City punkers with a former KZSUer on bass. It's your basic punk group with a leaning towards the poppy side every now and then. Simple guitars, bass, and drums with some yelled vocals on top. Sometimes you also get the more hardcore cookie monster vocals or some cool backup harmonies. It's not amazing, but it's solid fun punk that you can sing along to. Plus most songs are pretty damn funny. One major complaint I have is that there are only 2 songs that have no FCCs. Please guys, stop with the bad words, we can't play them on the radio!!!
My Picks: 2 (fcc at very end), 5 (fcc), 7 (fcc)

1) Fast punk with solid driving drums. Yelled vocals. Pretty simple guitar line and nice bass. Fcc: says "fuck" several times.
2) Uptempo and poppy with cute vocals. Oooo, nice tambourine! Reminds me of the more poppy songs from Screeching Weasel or The Queers. Very cool. Fcc: says "fuck" at the very end of a sample (easy to just fade it out before that).
3) Starts with a comedy bit sample. Midtempo with basic punk/pop formula. Nice breakdown section at the end. Fcc: says "shit" in the initial comedy clip.
4) Again starts with a clip. Goes into a midtempo punk song. Vocals are yelled in a sort of goofy hardcore voice that sounds a bit like cookie monster.
5) Ah yes, a clip to start into an uptempo punk song. Fun and kind of bouncy. Pretty catchy too. Fcc: says "shit."
6) Starts with guitar and falls into a midtempo song that kind of drags a bit. Several vocal layers on this. Weird space guitar solo.
7) Loud and crazy fast!! Punk rawk!! Nice bass. Short song. Fcc: says "shit."
8) Starts with coughing and goes into a bratty sounding midtempo song. Kind of sloppy drunk sound on the vocals. Guitar is really repetitive. Ends with a burp. Fcc: says "shit" several times.
9) Starts with some quiet droning and fades in. Drums start pounding in and you can begin to hear a guitar line. Starts an uptempo punk song. Totally cool guitar on the chorus. Funny flange effect on the guitar near the end. Fcc: says "shit" and "fuck" a few times.
10) Midtempo punk song with whiny vocals. Gross coughing or maybe vomiting noises every now and then. Ick.
