4.5 superbsockdonkey | June 26th 08

In Electric Boogaloo, Five Iron does not stay true to its ska roots, as it is written more as an alternative punk album. However, that does not take away from the album at all; if anything, it shows the band's incredible ability to be progressive and yet maintain their songwriting quality as they get older. Too many bands seem to fizzle out in their later years, but not FIF. EB is a uniquely diverse album, unlike any other I've heard, which combines the greatest aspects of alternative, punk rock, hardcore, and ska, featuring prominent, infectious horns and simple yet powerful guitars. This is album is one of the greats in my eyes.

5.0 classicdonovr | January 26th 08

This album is fantastic in so far as it blends beautiful melodic vocal passages over a polyphonic instrumentation. Reece Ropers vocals have a majestic air to them in songs like 'Far, Far Away,' 'Farsighted,' and 'Eulogy.' The drumming is straight-forward but nevertheless a rock solid backbone. The guitar playing is decently simple but exceedingly intricate while the horn sections produce welcomed accents. Despite songs like 'Pre-Ex-Girlfriend,' 'Plan B,' and 'You Can't Handle This,' the album is lyrically much darker than previous Five Iron releases. Arguably this album is the paradigmatic Five Iron Frenzy release.
