Album Review

One of the strange things that's happened to many of the ska-punk and neo-punk bands of the '90s is that as they've grown up and gotten to their third album, they start moving toward power pop territory, all seen through a new wave filter. Reel Big Fish is no exception to the rule. Their third album, Cheer Up!, still has elements of what brought them a hit in the post-alternative mid-'90s — metallic guitars competing with brassy horns, a mischievous sense of humor — but the tempos have slowed down a little, and they've spent more time crafting their songs, punching up the melody to the forefront, turning this into more of a pop album than a smirky rock album. This may distress some die-hard fans, but it actually results in a varied, infectious record that isn't just their most diverse album, it's their best. True, it doesn't capture the zeitgeist like their debut, but there's more character here, and it's more consistent, too. Not a bad way to mature.

Eh.. No 'Average Man'?

Albums alright, but I recently became addicted to this song by them called 'Average Man', which doesn't seem to be on here... It'd be great if it would be on here. I do like the other songs though, although I mainly came to buy the song..

Where is average man?

hey apple could you please get that song on itunes cause its what i would consider their best song yet its not here! BIG PROBLEM!!!!

Wha?

Are you kidding me? No Average Man? What the hell? This is the fifteenth time I've searched for something and it not be here. What is wrong with you people? Jesus, I swear, I'm tired of this crap of not being able to get good songs...

Reel Big Fish were one of the legions of Southern California ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-'90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. Like most of their peers, they were distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska. The group cultivated an underground following that broke into the mainstream in summer 1997, when the single "Sell Out" became a modern rock radio and MTV favorite. Reel Big Fish's...
