Album Review

Four Year Strong pay tribute to the '90s with this polished covers album, which features renditions of songs by Everclear, No Doubt, Nirvana, and their flannel-shirted ilk. The obvious goal here is nostalgia, a wistful sentiment that the group tries to stir up in the liner notes (which feature '90s-centric essays by the bandmates, all of whom give the decade an enthusiastic thumbs up) and the diverse track list.
