Reel big fish return with We're Not Happy Till You're Not Happy and its definately worth buying. The album has had pretty much no advertising whatsoever, but never mind...
If you liked the other Reel Big Fish albums, then this will offer the same, and more. Its very different to the band's previous release, Cheer Up, which was a lot more rock based than the other ska based albums. However, this CD combines all the different styles Reel Big Fish have to offer very nicely, enforcing the ska style a little more than Cheer Up. Highlights include The Fire (which has a great fill in the middle), Don't Start a Band (which has a great guitar part) and the cover Story of my Life (which just makes you wanna dance, like most of Reel Big Fish's songs)
Although the album's lyrical content could hint towards a split in the near future, you can feel safe in the knowledge that it just fits in with the 'character of the album' that Aaron talks about on their Myspace website. Also, it sounds as though the band are playing live at a gig or something, which is different to the usual reel big fish sound on a record. However, you get used to it, and it just makes the album sound different and fresh.
If you're new to Reel Big Fish, i recommend you get Why Do They Rock So Hard or Turn The Radio Off, as they are perhaps the best albums they have to offer so far. But although this may not be one of their best CDs, it still lives up to expectations and sounds pretty damn good.
