Album Review

Southern California's Voodoo Glow Skulls were skanking well before the major success of their fellow counterparts No Doubt, the Dance Hall Crashers, and Goldfinger, yet the band remains at the top of their game when delivering their own hearty side of vivacious rawk in the third wave of the ska revival. Returning with their fifth studio release Symbolic, the Voodoo Glow Skulls are as wry and humorously cynical as they ever were, and the gnarl remains the same.

The Voodoo Glow Skulls are confident enough to let things fly where they fly, and brash enough to identify with the honesty and truth backing the original threads of first wave ska-punk.
