Talking with Bowling for Soup singer Jaret Reddick, you may not immediately get the sense that this affable, down-to-earth Texan fronts a Grammy- and Emmy-nominated pop/punk band with over a million album sales to their credit. “If you compare our first album to our 10th one, you could be like, ‘Let’s see… Well, their voices finally changed, and they got a lot better ...

Product Description

This is tragicomedy of the highest Loser order. Drunk Enough to Dance, the second album from Texan pop punks Bowling for Soup, rips through the kind of chugging riffs and high-school trauma that no US teen movie should be without.

Led by former pet-shop owner Jaret Von Erich, the quartet here deliver 17 speedy doses of wise-cracking brat-pop while Von Erich picks over his hapless love life. As in the top-10 single "Girl All the Bad Guys Want"--a frustration-venting pogo-along about a hot rock-chick with a nose ring--the objects of his affection are invariably out of his league. This prompts a deluge of droll wallowing along the lines of this, in "Don't Wanna Rock": "She makes me want to be a homosexual / maybe then I'd be her best friend and see her naked once in a while." Even when he does get the girl of his dreams, in true screw-up style there are minor hiccups, as he whines regretfully on the lovelorn belter "Emily": "I got drunk / had sex with all your friends / you told me I should never call your house again."

Self-conscious, self-deprecating, and heavy on the self-pity, with big choruses, killer lines and a persecution complex to match, slacker rock doesn't come much better than this. --Dan Gennoe

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album I've bought all year 9 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bowling For soup's new album is without a doubt the best album I have bought all year. I love every single song on it, but my favourites are Surf Colarado and Cold Shower Tuesdays. It is quite simply totally addcitive and since I bought it it has never been out of my CD player. Their style of music may not be everyone's cup of tea, but is unique, catchy and put plainly rocks! I have only recently been introduced to Bowling For Soup and wasn't sure if I'd like the entire album, but now I can't wait to buy some of their earlier stuff, and look forward to hearing more from them. My advice to you is buy it now, play it loud, and sing along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portly Texans Get the Popularity they Deserve 26 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Simply put Bowling for Soup are one of the funniest punk/pop bands in the world possibly. So during 2002 , Blink 182 decided to step off stage and up comes 4 fat men from the state of Texas. Musically "Drunk Enough to Dance" sounds much like what you would expect from a bunch of punk rockers, which is practically a shame because Jaret Reddick is a funny lyricist when it comes to songs about break-ups, meeting parents and mainly girl trouble.
I think it still deserves 5 stars because even though the music is similar to "Let's do it for Johnny!" the tunes are still catchy and the lyrics in all the songs are hilarious.
Finally Bowling for Soup will get the popularity they deserve.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE best albumn EVA!!! 3 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I wouldnt say i am a rock fan however this albumn is the best ever and bowling for soup are now my fave band.
if, like me, you liked 'Girl all the bad guys' and 'Emily' then you will not be disapointed.
this albumn has a great mix of tunes - and shows how many different styles BFS can do.
the best songs, in my opinion are 'self centred' and 'surfin colarado' but they are all brill! the witty lyrics such as 'she says hes really ok, i really hope that he's gay,' are very funny and show off the best of BFS
a great albumn - BUY IT!!!

From the 1st track all the way through to end this is top quality stuff from BFS. If u r really hooked on "Girl all the bad guys want" Then u should really get this album its full of great pop/punk songs. For me the stand out tracks on this album are: Emily,girl all the bad guys want,on and on about you,where to begin and self centered all songs worthy of being released as singles in my opinion. My final thoughts on this album are if u like blink 182 and greenday then this is perfect for you.
plus at the very end of this album you get to hear an acoustic version of Belgium.
A definate improvement on the very good "lets do it for johnny"
if u got the first album then u definatley need to get this!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Rock Show of Our Lives 14 May 2006
By Chris C
Format:Audio CD
There are not many groups out there anymore that can tickle a listener's funny bone. Blink 182 grew up then broke up, Bloodhound Gang have been tailoring the same joke for ten years and unfortunately music is now dominated by sad ballads by people like Coldplay and James Blunt.

Bowling for Soup's summery pop-punk for me is the sunshine equivalent to the drizzly and miserable sounds of Chris Martin. Drunk Enough to Dance is probably their second best album available.

Featuring the classic 'Girl all the Bad Guys Want', Drunk Enough to Dance parodys through self-consciousness with witty lines, catchy hooks and a smile. Perhaps even Jaret had no idea, these songs would get his band a grammy nomination.

It must be said if you like songs about egotism (Self-Centered), dreaded in-laws (Running from your Dad) and low self-esteem (Scaring Myself) then Drunk Enough to Dance is a very funny record.

Buy this along with A Hangover You Don't Deserve. You will not regret it. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars these guys are what music is about 11 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
okay, i admit it i am a dedicated fan, but ill reveiw this album honestly..... its brilliant... im not just saying it as a fan, because when i first heard it i wasnt a big fan... just curious... but i just couldnt turn it off, i still listen to it lots. 'life after lisa' and 'running from your dad' and 'surf collarado' are my favourate tracks. 'running from your dad' is a gr8 song with really funny lyrics, 'guess you didnt really like the gifts, porno dvds and see-through underwear, should have saved all that for your sis' a gr8 song... and this album made me buy tickets to see them live... and it all came then... i became a dedicated fan. this album is music how it should be... relaxing u, making u smile and laughing about life. they arent a serious band, just out to have fun and thats what sets them apart form a lot of bands. they can laugh at themselves happily and their circumstances they find themselves in and jaret turns them into gr8 songs.
five stars to this- one of my top three albums ever. fantastic!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bowled over again 26 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
They're back with their third album and I have to say this is their best so far. Lets do it for Johnny was 13 tracks of pure brilliance and this has now got catchier tunes, deeper lyrics and cunning lay out of songs. All 16 tracks and the limited edition version of "World Falling apart" is stunning as well as the solo version of old favourite "Belgium". Comedy in Running from your dad, tears in "cold shower tuesday" and of course "Girls all the bad guys want". If you're a fan of new wave punk then my friends Bowling For Soup are for you, funny, witty, moving and downright brilliant. Go get it.

Whilst not a classic. Has enough funky numbers to satisfy the BFS fan. And another version of Belgium! I'm waiting for the death metal take on it.
