Album Review

Allroy Sez was OK but way short of the Descendents/All's standards. Allroy for Prez is so much better that it makes its predecessor sound stillborn. Main songwriter Bill Stevenson takes a much deserved rest, and his bandmates shine in his stead. Bassplayer Karl Alvarez's "Skin Deep" (not the Stranglers' or Passions' great 45s) is the real gem, opening the record with one of the finest songs of this band's first nine years. Whopping hooks, great backing vocals, and even sharp lyrics on plastic people, L.A.'s biggest export. Of the rest, only the jerky instrumental "Son-O-Qua" is skippable; "Skin Deep" and the other five tracks clock in with some of the meatiest pop since...well, since the Descendents' previous LP. Stephen Egerton's fine guitar is so high in the mix that he almost drowns out Dave Smalley's sublime pop vocals, a real attraction to this Milo-less record. Clever cover art too, timed for the 1988 national election. Descendents live LPs are still coming out, but this is much more important now. ~ Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover, Rovi

Customer Reviews

good record

It's good, I think any new fan should start buying their records in order (allroy for prez, allroy sez, allroy's revenge, allroy saves, percolater, and so on), but i think this is a good record. now all they need is mass nerder, and i can finish my whole colection.

Solid ALL

Allroy for Prez is foundational ALL. If you like the Descendents, you need to have this album. And if you like new ALL (Chad Price), you need to have this to understand from whence they came.

There's little more angsty-emo pop-punk than "Just Perfect". And melodically, these songs (especially "Daveage") won't leave you alone. You'll be humming them all day long.

Formed: 1987 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

When renowned (and often copied) Los Angeles punk rockers the Descendents were forced to go on hiatus in the late '80s when singer Milo Aukerman left the group to attend college full-time, the remaining members decided to carry on under a different name: ALL (lifted from the title of the Descendents' final 1987 studio recording). Former Descendents members Bill Stevenson (drums), Stephen Egerton (guitar), and Karl Alvarez (bass) were all in attendance, as former Dag Nasty frontman Dave Smalley assumed...
