Review Summary: The debut album Real Talk could have some people really talking...

Man Overboard. Debut Album. Real Talk. I'll start off with some Real Talk of my own.

I think this album could be the building blocks to a potentially great pop-punk band. Man Overboard, having many EP's that were decent and amateur, have finally come out with a full length debut album. Real Talk has everything ranging from quick catchy choruses to slow soft songs, and they'll leave you coming back for more.

To start off Real Talk, comes the song...Real Talk. I wouldn't exactly call this a great start to the album since it doesn't reflect the other songs but it's also my favorite on the album. It brings a more hardcore-punk sound to the album and starts it off in a kick-ass way. This should be the first song you check out.

Lyrically, the songs are cliche, but in a good way, if that makes sense. Most of the songs are about love, which is about 80% of music today, yet Man Overboard know how to talk about it the right way using words and lines most bands wouldn't think of, for example, "I'll meet you in your head, tonight when you're in bed." - Septemberism. Some lines could be cliche but they flow the right way. But with lyrics their also comes the people to sing it, which are the singers.

The lead singer of the band in my opinion has a great voice that people should like, and the backup vocals are also good. in the song Real Talk, both singers flow their voices together perfectly to make a great song, and other good tracks on the album. I enjoy how the band doesn't try to hard and are still trying to find themselves and it seems like their close to rising up from the depths of underground.

The single on the album, Fantasy Girl, has catchy guitar riffs, and a simple chorus but I wouldn't even consider it one of the top 5 songs on the album.

If your going to check out the album, the songs I'd recommend are Septemberism, Real Talk, Parting Gift, Al Sharpton, and Montrose.

So there you have it, Real Talk. For real.

It's from the liner notes for Document #8, they used it a fair bit and tons of kids have pg.99 tattoos of it. It's not a big deal I just prefer it associated with pg.99 than Man Overboard, plus I use it on this website of mine and kids are like "omg it's a man overboard song!" and then I'm like "no it's not it's from Document #8 hmph"

I was really satisfied with this album. It isn't as good as their earlier work, but it's still really good. I gotta say, though, that Fantasy Girl has to be in my top 5. It's catchy as hell.
