I know it’s early, but I’m just going to go ahead and call it: Warning Device by Teenage Bottlerocket will definitely be on my top 10 for 2008 (and if it’s not, then it will be one hell of a good year for music!)
For the dedicated Housewivers out there, you may remember that Teenage Bottlerocket was the first post I ever made nearly 11 months ago (wow… we’re almost a year old!)
Teenage Bottlerocket delivers us 13 new pop-punk tunes (think Groovie Ghoulies, Screeching Weasel-esque), and pick up where they left off with 2005’s “Total”. From the opening “Bottlerocket”, a no frills 50 second punk tune all the way to the “whoa”-laced closer “Wasting Time”, Warning Device is an all around fun punk cd, perfect to ward off that winter depression.
If you’re looking for poignant lyrics, look elsewhere. But the simplicity of the lyrics are also part of the beauty of the album… within one listen, you’ll be singing along in no time. But if you’re looking for some pogo-inducing toe-tapping punk songs, look no further.
