Biography

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 ...

I've been a fan of BFS since "Let's Hear It For Johnny", have seen them live and was thrilled to hear a couple of month's back that they had a new album. It's a cliche to say, but they just get better and better with every release.

At first when i heard "High School Never Ends" I assumed it would be another fun, punk rock melody album with feel good songs, but it was even better to hear such a variety of styles. Not saying BFS have been repetitive in the past, but this album really shows the talented song writing and maturity of the band. By creating a new sound perfectly, it shows why they are the good band they are.

The album starts with very catchy, anthem type songs like "High school never ends", "I'm Gay" and "A Friendly Goodbye". but halfway through, theres more edgier songs like "Much more beautiful person" and more ballady and touching song like "when we die" - a first for BFS.

"Much more beautiful person" and "when we die" are my personal favourite tracks, but the whole album rocks. I can't seem to remove it from my stereo either!

so definitely buy this album. or while your at it, see them live aswell!!!

BFS became one of my favorite bands a couple of years back when Let's Hear It For Johnny laid siege to my in car CD player (I actually bought it by mistake, because I thought it had "Girl all the bad guys want" on it. Duh!). That album though was GREAT. 20 something tracks of pop-punk genius.

I was really hoping for the same again here but, to be honest, the album does not really come to life until track 9. Before that it's good but all very standard BFS fare with plenty of clever/funny lyrics and good harmonies (which admittedly make them better than most bands anyway) but not offering the kind of killer hooks of the last 2 albums (I say last 2 albums ignoring the best ignored "BFS at the Movies" compilation.)

That being said, when it does get into it's stride, with stand out songs definitely being "99 Biker Friends", "Much More Beautiful Person" and "When We Die", it rocks BIG TIME!

If you're a BFS fan, buy this as it won't dissappoint in any way but if you are new to the band get "Lets Hear it..." or "Drunk Enough..." first to really get the BFS bug.

If light-hearted pop punk is what you're in the mood for, then this is the album for you! Packed with clever lyrics, shameless name-dropping and laugh out loud moments, this fun album is the perfect thing to brighten up a dull afternoon.

The first single is "High School Never Ends", a catchy track with pop culture inspired lyrics like "Check out the popular kids / You'll never guess what Jessica did / How did Mary Kate lose all that weight / And Katie had a baby so I guess Tom's straight". Other good'uns are "Epiphany", "Val Kilmer", "Why Don't I Miss You", "Friends Like You" and "Don't Let It Be Love".

Caution: Contains some language unsuitable for tender ears or the easily offended.

This is a great CD from Bowling For Soup! Definatly their best! There are so many good songs in this CD, each with great moments, from the sing-along chorus of Epiphany, to the oh-o-oh-oh-o-os of High School Never Ends, from the great rhytem of Val Kilmer, to the im-happy-get-over-it-kiss-my-ass feeling of I'm Gay. You have to hear the great 5-6-7-na-na-nana-na-na chorus of A Friendly Goodbye, spectalular. And who can forget the YOU BOTH SUCK DOT COM in Luckiest Loser. The chorus in Love Sick Stomach Ache (Sugar Coated Accident) is brilliant, you gotta hear it, so heres the lyrics:

Popsicle lovin,

Pie crusts promises,

Ice cream kisses

That I'm really gonna miss you.

Smithsonian, peppermint,

Sugar coated accident, empty locker cavity,

And now we're just history.

And this is all I ever wanted.

I can take the heartbreak.

Can I get something for my lovesick stomache ache?

I love the cheerleader chants of Friends Like You, but I was amazed by When We Die. Probably the slowest Bowling for Soup song I've ever heard, but its still astounding, not to be missed.

The best songs on this are Epiphany, Val Kilmer, I'm Gay, Luckiest Loser, When We Die, hey there all great! If you liked any other Bowling for Soup albums, you'll fall in love with this.

When The Black Parade was released to the number one spot last year, it became apparent that emo was the new cool, sadly, because I can't find anything inspiring about music that 'encourages' death. So you can imagine nothing could be better than finding a new Bowling for Soup album in store.

It seems like with every album, BFS are always improving themselves without the wealth of fame getting to their heads and certainly for them to improve on their predecessor is by any means to easy task. So did they succeed?

Well its a yes and its a no for The Great Burrito Extortion Case. Lead single High School Never Ends follows pretty much the same formula as 1985, since it is a memories song and its message is amusing in its honest truth ('The whole damn world is just as obsessed with whose the best dressed and whose having sex). And if you didn't know how happy this band is then I'm Gay should give a much more clearer indication.

Of course, and this may be the downfall, TGBEC is where BFS has started to mature with songs such as When We Die and If You Come Back To Me. Hell there's even songs about the depressed teenager ('Much More Beautiful Person') and domestic abuse ('99 Biker Friends') but its the music that stops it from being a disaster.

Regardless of the setbacks, this is probably the happiest collection of songs you'll hear all year, whether its the misconcepted A Friendly Goodbye, the high school chant of Friends Like You or the extremely catchy Epiphany and Love Sick Stomach Ache, The Great Burrito Extortion Case is a wonderful album.

It may not have the immediate impact of its predecessors, but its certainly a worthy addition in their catalogue, hopefully they can keep this spark when maturity fully hits them.

Buy Now :-)
