Get Bent was another one of those short-lived-but-full-of-awesome punk bands that write some of the best music the genre has. In Get Bent's case, this is their discography compilation, which is a tandem of their practically flawless debut demo and their solid sophomore demo, along with their contribution to the split with Jean Claude Jam Band and a bonus track. Musically, it is full of catchy indie-punk with a pop-punk aesthetic. The half-shouted, half-sung vocal delivery is lovely, and the bass on this thing is too fun not to mention. Lyrically, the album focuses on life experiences and questions, and there's no shortage of sing-along choruses and quotable shouts here. Basically, if you need some great pop-punk in your year, Get Bent has you covered and then some.
