Album Review

Showoff's pop punk debut is irresistible — to a point. The young Chicago band has the strident vocals, the martial beats accelerating into warp-speed, the pink hair-it's punk-by-numbers. Nonetheless, "Second Chance" is a great piece of new wave/old school songwriting as is the melodic "Someone" which rests firmly in power pop/jangle territory till the grunge guitar-grind begins; "Tell Me" is solid hard rock. Rock purists will have to concede the band has a knack for the form of music that once changed rock and roll. No matter Showoff's members weren't born when punk hit — like Green Day they get its spirit — it's just that their version is bubblegum.

Back in the day...

This was/is a great album. Wish my CD copy still worked so I could put it on my iTunes and share the wealth. The album is only ten years old, but it could still see a resurgence. Rock on Showoff.

Buy this album! It is worth the money! I listen to EVERY track of it!
