Album Review

Although pop-punk groups are a dime a dozen in 2002, the genre still has a lot of gas left in the tank. Some bands do put the effort into sticking out from the rest of the pack, and one of those bands is Manges. The cooler-than-thou vocals and old-school songwriting make for a more interesting approach, while the overall presentation brings to mind the hipster aesthetic of '70s New York punk. "I'm a Monkey" is a high-energy assault that lovingly recalls the Ramones' Too Tough to Die era, starting the album with a great song and setting the mood perfectly.

Nothing here hasn't been done before, but this time it's being done with the Manges' distinctive stamp on the songs. The Manges' first full-length for Stardumb is an excellent introduction to a band that has its sights on making great punk rock, pure and simple.
