Going Home
Open Your Eyes
Tell Me
It's Your Life
Spank Bank
FTN (**** Ted Nugent)

Going Home: 7/10

A good opening track, nice drums and guitar lyrics are a bit repetative though.

Spokesman: 8/10

Second single to be taken from the album and a good track all around.

Open Your Eyes: 8/10

Title track and first single good track bit of everything in here, also some quite expressive lyrics about there feeling towards animal rights.

Decision: 9/10

Very catchy riff quite diferent from the preceeding tracks very in the style of MXPX.

Dad: 7/10

Again a bit of everything, but a very punk rock sound to this with a quite heavy interlude around 2 mins.

Tell Me: 10/10

Extremley catchy nothing to fault and if I remember correctly this was the B-side to Spokesman.

Liar: 5/10

Only 19 secs long a bit of a waste, but what the hell.

January: 8/10

A recolection of an old girlfriend a bit more laid back and not as heavy.

Happy: 7/10

Good song again a bit laid back compared with the rest of the album.

Woodchuck: 3/10


It's Your Life: 8/10

Good acoustic intro, very catchy tune all in all. At about 1min 30secs it goes a bit reggae.

Spank Bank: 6/10

John's voice is very quiet again the intro has a reggae beat they it goes very punk on 1min.

Youth: 7/10

Actoustic song a bit of a ballad like everything else very catchy.

Radio: 8/10

A good riff and drum fill between verse and chorus, in the chorus John's voice sounds a bit gravely this is probably intentional.

F.T.N.: 9/10

This is where their political views come in it is still a very good drum beat.

All songs written by John Fieldmann.

Open Your Eyes - John Fieldmann & Kelly Lemieux
Tell Me - John & Amy Fieldmann

i'm a fan of goldfinger, although don't own any of their albums.

Nice album, well done Punk/Pop-Punk, but nothing that stays in my ears too long.

My rating: 3.5 - 4/5 :thumb:

I dont like most of the songs in this album. I'd give it a 2.5/5

This a good feel gud album, with subtle politcal opinions, however there're few songs I'd really listen to again and again on this album.
It's your life, Tell Me, and Open Your Eyes.
3/5 for the album.
The review cuda done with a lot more depth a bit sparse really, but gud for a quick over hall.
