Product description

Review

As contagious as any of the lyrics, melodies, riffs, or drum fills are, their energy and lack of self-consciousness is every bit as equally lovable. 8.3 Best New Music --Pitchfork

Format: Audio CD
Celebration Rock Japandroids sophomore album was easily near the top of my list, for albums i was eagerly anticipating this year and if you've heard their previous record (Post Nothing) i probably don't need to tell you why. For the benefit of the review i will though;) Their 2009 debut was the most potent display of nostalgia fuelled, desperately chaotic Alt Rock i'd heard in a long time. It was emotional with a capital E and even if you thought the musicanship was lacking in sophistication or the lyrical simplicity was bordering on juvenile at times, you'd be hard pressed to deny the integrity of the sentiment. These guys played too gosh darn loud for their sincerity to be brought into question and to these ears the "amateurish" borderline hormonal rock songs felt extremely visceral and truely special.

Celebration Rock follows the formula that made Post Nothing so coruscatingly endearing with the band playing with that same corporeal intensity. David prowse explosively drums right after the openening fireworks on "The Night of Wine and Roses" and right up until the closing one's on "Continuous Thunder". Brian King brings his pummelling power chords and frenzied vocals to the fray again also, creating that same glorious cacophany that won so many people over on their debut. The only noticable progression on CR is perhaps in the lyrics department, the scope of PN didn't really extend beyond a fear of getting old and although CR mainly stays within this territory their perspective feels even more forthright this time round "Long lit up tonight And still drinking Don't we have anything to live for? Well of course we do" are the first lines that Brian King sings and this album is full of similar lines of affirmation and reverie.

Celebration Rock is the album that was never meant to be. Its excellent predecessor Post-Nothingwas the sound of a mid-20s duo throwing in the towel yet giving it their all and going out with an almighty bang. It captured not only the band's hopes, fears and dreams, but it shone a mirror straight back at its audience. Just as Brian King and David Prowse's previous two EPs had been, these were identifiable songs that yelled about getting out of your hometown, drinking, getting girls (or not), being young and getting older.

The problem was the Post-Nothing was too good a sign-off, its rallying cries too loud to be contained in Vancouver, Canada, North America even. Word-of-mouth eventually took their mauling missive worldwide - and to ears that immediately demanded more.

Celebration Rock is the welcome result and on it Japandroids remain a rough-and-ready punk-rock twosome capable of astonishing turns of melody amid sense-shredding noise. Condensed into the same eight-track format as Post-Nothing, Celebration Rock is merely a precise extension of the past. There's arguably a more refined level of production - Prowse no longer seems to rely on cardboard boxes by way of drums, King's vocal is minutely clearer in the mix - but the pair are still all about shouting to-and-fro over peels of thunderous guitar and overblown drum rolls, living and breathing every air guitar/drum opportunity and laying down discernible party anthems with every massive chorus.

I got this cd after seeing Japandroids support Gaslight Anthem this year. There is no track skipping when I listen to it which is always a good sign! It's not ground breaking but then who cares when it rocks! Play it and play it loud and if you get chance go and see them live.
