All of our 10"s come stuffed with a professionally printed cdr w/ booklet + poster! The Children's Crusade recordings that make up Get Awesome are what originally inspired the start of It's Alive Records. Clever lyrics, dual vocalists trading off snotty and smooth vocals, perfect percussions, simplistic guitar riffing aplenty, steady driving rhythms, variety of song subjects and musical styles... this record has it all! The best pop punk music is that which hooks you from the get go with its catchiness but keeps you coming back around again and again by offering something more with each listen. These songs have a lot more to offer than it might seem with the first listen - each song is its own little masterpiece, crafted rather than simply assembled. Get Awesome is a perfect example of minimalist music styling with maximum results.

Some of the lyrics and chord progressions are a little bland, and some of the vocals are a little on the whiny side, but otherwise this is a solid pop-punk release. Firm and obvious Screeching Weasel influence and even some Lemonheads moments. Sadly they take some of the less stellar aspects of the Lemonheads and genre in general, "Pectin Patella" is a miserable closer and should have been replaced with something intelligent and lasting. If you are a fan of the pop-punk genre, buy this record. If you are on the fence about pop-punk, you probably don't want it.

This is good shit. Catchy as fuck and good lyrics accompany this 10". I have been listening to this record non-stop and I love that they give you a CD too.
