Well...it's def not stroll
What's with all the hate on fluent in stroll? Love that album. There is a time to chill out and a time to pick it up. The fact that big d can make both types of albums back to back proves talented they are.
I'm not sure what you people are on, but this is certainly not a 5 star album. As a huge Big D fan, I personally find "How It Goes" and "Strictly Rude" to be their best work. "Fluent In Stroll" was enjoyable too, in a very different kind of way. This release, while certainly fun in parts, just feels like 10 steps back for a band that has been constantly evolving the last couple of years. I'm sure the mosh pit kids will be happy their fast songs are back, but honestly there's nothing really special here. I like Big D because they've always been pushing the limits of what ska can be, in a time when the genre is on life support. This release just feels rushed, and lacks any kind of emotion or wit that really grabbed me as a fan in the first place.
Not horrible, but not good either.
I love Big D and the Kid's table, I have every album and have seen them in concert many times. This album was just not that great. there are a few good songs but no stand outs. How it goes, Strictly Rude, and Fluent in stroll showed a clear evolution of the music, and the music was that much better for it. This album sounded like they wanted to go back to how they started, fast, raw, ska-punk, which sounds greta on paper but ignoring the progress that the music has made in there last 3 albums was a mistake. This album sounds rehashed and weak compared to the albums that have come out in the past few years. These guys are more capable of more than Riffs and fast horns, Fluent in Stroll proved they can make good, melodic music, which is what this album is sorely lacking. This album is a devolution rather than an evolution.
