2.0 poorThe Door Mouse | June 23rd 07

For me, the main thing that makes ska remotely enjoyable is how fun it is to listen to. Other than that the speedy reggae chords, blaring horns and thoughtless drum beats do not appeal to me.

But then again that's just me.

Smash Mouth got an immense amount of publicity with their release Astro Lounge. Their single All Star got radio play up the wazzo and these guys were sitting pretty. To me this was a sign from God. I could listen to this all day without getting bored. Then once I out-grew my tinker toys I realized that this wasn't such a "sign from God" as I thought it was. I realized that the songwriting was far from unique, the instrumentals were anything but jaw dropping and the lyrics were over cliched. The only thing that kept this from terrible is that they do appeal to their target crowed. Pre-teens who want to have fun and get out of school and that is what the mood of this album is really. So kudos to appealing to me greatly throughout my child years but I realized that this wasn't as great as I thought it was.

there's several 60s-ish hipster songs on here that are classics: "Then the Morning Comes", "Can't get enough of you", and "Come on, Come on". "All Star" is a bit poppy, but charming in its own right. The other single "Waste" is decent enough. rThe first few opening tracks are decent enough; I at least thought they were worthy of putting in my WMP library. There's some other stuff on here that is absolute dreck, of course. It makes one wonder why they would even try to put 15 songs on here when so many of them are not worth listening to. By no standard is this album a train wreck, but there is obvious filler.

I loooooved listening to All Star when I was a kid. It was like my favorite song but I had no idea what it was called or who performed it. I remember it being performed in the movie "Rat Race" and also played in shrek I believe? Lisened to the song yesterday and I noticed I still like it. Maby not as much as when I was a little kid but hey, it's a really fun song to listen to. It's catchy as he** and I like it.
