Rancid -B Sides And C Sides CD

Rancid
B Sides And C Sides CD

With a title like "B Sides And C Sides", it should be obvious what kind of album you're in for which is basically a lot of second rate leftovers with some killer gems mixed in. If this album were available on ITunes, I'd advise you to just buy the best songs from there so you can skip the filler here. If you're a huge Rancid fan though, I'd still recommend buying this CD for "Ben Zanotto", "Brothels", "I Wanna Riot" and "Devil's Dance".

Guts
Let It Go CD

Good CD. The Guts are probably one of the best bands to carry on the pop punk torch in the same vein Of The Queers and Screeching Weasel. In fact, it boasts an excellent cover of The Queers' "Love, Love" Love" which is sung by Mr. Ben Weasel himself. The best songs are the ultra-catchy "Heartbreaker", "Always And Forever" w/Hallie Unlovable and "Blackout". Definitely recommended for any fan of pop punk.

Riverdales -Invasion USA CD

Riverdales
Invasion USA CD

This is probably my least favorite album of the four they've released which is mainly due to the songs not being as catchy and memorable as they have been on their previous efforts. That being said, "Invasion USA" is still head and shoulders above 99% of the pop punk stuff out there and "Rocketship X-M", "Atomic Brain", and especially "Heart Out Of Season" rank up there with the rest of this band's best work.

Queers -The Queers Alive In Hollyweird CD/DVD

Queers
The Queers Alive In Hollyweird CD/DVD

This is a great DVD! As far as the show itself, the sound quality is great, the band is tight, the setlist has most of the classics, and Danny Vapid gets on stage to play on a few songs as well. This DVD also has a lot of cool extras like an interview with Joe Queer, Lisa Marr singing "I Can't Get Over You", audio commentaries featuring Joe, Dave, Matt & Sean Rowley, a lyric track, and best of all, footage from a Queers show circa 1990 featuring the classic B-Face/Hugh line-up. It's actually B-Face's show and you may find his attire good for a few laughs as well (Joe certainly does on the commentary). "The Queers Are Here" is good and certainly worth owning but "Alive In Hollyweird" is absolutely essential for any Queers fan.

Regal Beagle -A Little Tide Up CD

Regal Beagle
A Little Tide Up CD

This CD is pretty good Ramones/Queers-style pop punk and is, in fact, produced by Mr. Joe Queer himself. Joe sings lead on "Summertime" (definitely the album's best song) and they do a straightforward cover of "Voodoo Doll". "A Little Tide Up" sounds so much like The Queers that it sounds like it could be a lost Queers album. That being said, I do think the band comes up a little short in the songwriting dept. They may have The Queers' sound down cold but their songs just aren't as good as their primary influence. Many of their songs simply don't stand out or fail to make much of an impression because they're short on catchy melodies. (Recycling the classic 1-4-5 chord progression is only going to get you so far if you don't put a great melody over it.) But when they do craft a catchy tune, they play it convincingly and bring back the mid-90s Lookout era pop punk sound with a vengeance. This is recommended but I hope the band can talk Joe Queer or Ben Weasel into writing the tunes for their next album.

Riverdales -Phase 3 (Reissue) CD

Riverdales
Phase 3 (Reissue) CD

Asian Man Records has reissued yet another out of print pop punk classic. As with the label's previous reissues of the first Riverdales album and The Queers & Screeching Weasel's catalog, they have made this reissue worth purchasing by adding new artwork, remastered sound, new song sequencing, and of course, bonus tracks! While I still consider "Storm The Streets" my favorite Riverdales album, the new songs (particularly "Countdown", "You Know You Do" and a faster version of "Mental Retard") make "Phase 3" a very close runner-up...This edition of their last album is definitely worth picking up.

V/A (Queers Covers) -God Save The Queers CD

V/A (Queers Covers)
God Save The Queers CD

Being that tribute albums are generally uneven by nature, this album is pretty good. Usually the best moments of a tribute album are when a band doesn't just replicate the original arrangement but tries to do something fresh with the song. The main problem with this respectable approach is that you can get less than favorable results which is certainly the case here.

Most of the covers are passable, some of them flat out suck (like "I Hate Everything", "You're Tripping", "Hi Mom It's Me",) and some of them are GREAT (particularly "Love Me", "This Place Sucks", "Homo", "Goodbye California", "Boobarella", "Fuck The World", and "Teenage Gluesniffer").

This album is recommended but you would be better suited picking up all of the Asian Man reissues first.

Riptides -Hang Out CD

Riptides
Hang Out CD

You pretty much know what you're in for when there's a pic of Chuck Taylors on the the cover. Most of the songs are Ramonesy 3-minute slabs filled with plenty of hooks and catchy sing-a-long choruses. The highlights are "That Girl", "Detention", and "China Doll" with Joe Queer on vocals. This song is easily the standout track on the album and it could have easily fit on Munki Brain or Punk Rock Confidential. While I could have done without some of the more aggressive songs like "Red Dawn" (which border on Sick Of It All-style hardcore), this is mostly a damn good pop punk album that fans of The Ramones or The Queers will like.

Queers -Weekend At Bernie's CD

Queers
Weekend At Bernie's CD

While "Suck This" boasts the stellar "Beat Off" line-up of Joe, B-Face, Danny Vapid, & Dan Panic and "Live In West Hollywood" has the best sound of the three live CDs, "Weekend At Bernies" still deserves top billing as the best live Queers CD because:

1. It has the most material, including rarities such as Grow Up's "Goodbye California", Love Songs For The Retarded's "I Can't Stop Farting", and A Day Late & A Dollar Short's "Wimpy Drives Through Harlem"

2. It has a great line-up of its own, which includes Phillip Hill (ex-Teen Idols) playing bass and singing back-ups.

3. Excellent covers: The Ramones' "Slug" and "Rockaway Beach", The Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and Angry Samoans' "My Old Man's A Fatso".

4. The biggest treat of all is the short set of "A Day Late And Dollar Short" & "Livin' La Vida Loca" tunes that close the record. The songs are performed as The Drunken Cholos with Wimpy on vocals and they run through the old tunes with enthusiatic abandon. It doesn't get much better than that.

While you may question the need for another live Queers album (which would be fair), don't skimp on this live CD because THIS IS THE ONE TO BUY.

Queers -Grow Up (Reissue) CD
Click for more info

Queers
Grow Up (Reissue) CD

Out of all The Queers' reissues, this is the one that I have been antcipating the most, mainly because the Lookout version of this album sounds like crap. But in spite of that, Grow Up was always one of my favorite Queers albums because of its great pop punk songs such as "I Met Her At The Rat", "Burger King Queen", "Boobarella", "I Don't Wanna Get Involved With You", etc. These are great songs that have been buried beneath the crappy production all these years. After getting the issues of "Love Songs" and "Beat Off", I was very optimistic that Mass Giorgini's remix would finally give these songs the clear production that they deserved. While I do think that some of the songs (like "I'll Be True To You" and "Boobarella") sound way better here, there isn't much of an improvement overall in the sound quality from the Lookout version. Basically, don't expect this album to sound as good as the previous reissues. That being said, cool bonus tracks like The Ramones' "Slug", The Stooges' "Dog Food", and alternate takes of "Feeling Groovy" and "Goodbye California" still make this reissue worth picking up. This definitely isn't the best Queers album but it is a neat glimpse into their transitional period from the old school punk of the Wimpy-era material to their pop punk sound of today that all we know and love.
