Superb. I'm not a particular fan of ska really, but I have to say this is very, very, very good. And it's very appropriately titled, I can't help but smile when I whack this in my stereo.
The band picked a gem of an opener in "Good Thing", for aaaaages this was my favourite song and it's just so good! Everything about it makes you smile, the vocal harmonies are flawless, it's one of those songs that you love, but you're not really sure why. There isn't anything special about it when you break it all down, but as a song with everything together, it gives you a great feeling. Even my mom likes this song! The first 5 tracks are great ska, but not conventional ska at all. You won't find any upstrokes on the top three strings off the beat - the trademark ska style. RBF have really broken the mould with the opening 5 tracks. I love the inventiveness of the songs, really well done guys.
Tracks 6 through 8 revert back the usual ska structure, but they're still very good. If you're a hardcore ska fan, you'll appreciate these tracks, but if you don't really like ska-by-numbers, skip the tracks, you've still got some killer tracks to come.
It all goes very experimental after track 8. Tributes to different people that have nothing to do with ska pop up in "Rock 'N Roll is Bitchin'" (one for the Kiss fans) and a superb a cappella version of "New York, New York". More inventive ska in "Dateless Losers" - a particular favourite of mine, and "Valerie". Also, "Brand New Hero" (completely stealing the riff out of "By The Way" by the Chili Peppers and shifting up the neck of the guitar slightly) shows us that RBF have taken ska to another level.
The real quality of this record lies in the creativity of the Fish in largely ignoring conventional ska methods and techniques, and blown open the possibilities for ska bands - if these guys can fuse together good-time rock 'n roll with chirpy ska, then everyone should start doing it too. Buy it, you won't regret it

You wouldn't believe how long I've waited for this CD to be released, I've been a fan since "turn the radio off!" and am a firm believer in the SKA scene. Well where to begin, the anticipation for this release was huge, having heard "Suckers" played live my appetite was truly wetted! Reel big fish have not dissapointed. From the opening track "good thing" we are into an uplifting tune filled with the usual riffs and horns we've come to expect. This trend carries on nicely through the next two tracks and then things go, well.....Goldfingerish! Dont get me wrong Goldfinger are great and I'm a fan but you feel what with the lack of horns they're only doing this to get noticed and play something that will propell them into the mainstream, "where have you been" (the first single) is a perfect example. Don't get me wrong I'm not slagging them off, "I love the fish" it just sounds unusual. The album carries on forward in true fish form "suckers" and "what are friends for" are great tracks. Again we slip into goldfinger territory with "dateless losers" and "valerie" but this is still great!. Then things take a dip, just fillers really "rock and roll is bitchin'" is funny but a little dull, but hey i'm just a big fan of horns!!. I heard a rumour that there was a cover of "new york, new york" and my first reaction was great, but then I heard it and was sadly dissapointed, It's good but come on guys! wheres the ska, I kept expecting the guitar and the horns to burst in and for it to pick up pace, but it didn't and unfortunately left it a little flat. Every other track is great especially "boss dj" and the bonus tracks are fantastic. Make sure you check out Scotts vocal debut on "drunk again" a great melancholic bluesy tune that i can't help but sing along to, amazing!!.Read more ›

On my first play of 'Cheer Up!', I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed with it... but then I listened to it again, and again, and again, and again. While the album perhaps marks a move away from ska/punk towards plain old rock (only with the addition of a horn section), it still has that certain charm about it that could only come from the Fish. The opening track 'Good Thing' is a solid rock tune, along with the likes of 'Where Have You Been?'(the first single from this album)), 'Valerie', 'Brand New Hero'.
'Ban The Tube Top', 'Suckers', 'A Little Doubt Goes A Long Way' and 'Kiss Me Deadly' are all songs in the traditional RBF style, while a vocals-only (plus human percussion) version of 'New York, New York', and the almost ballad-like 'Drunk Again' provide something that little bit different.
All in all, some great thumping tunes and some excellent trumpet playing come together to make this ANOTHER great Reel Big Fish album.

REEL BIG FISH

ARE THE BEST
this album shows the evolution of the fish. (the band of course!)
and i have to say it one of their best. with the title track "cheer up" doing excactly what it says on the box. and "ban the tube top" a song about a girl who according to them is 17 evil and mean! reel big fish combine quality skanking and comedy at its best, also the price of this album is great! this would be a great addition to anyone who is either tryign out rbf for the 1st time or a massive collector. it rocks...well it skanks!! its great! also the bonus tracks such as "kiss me deadly" and "give it to me" are one my personal favourites. overall this cd gets 5 stars..because like loreal its worth it!
up up up and away to the skank pit...go on off you go... or you could buy this album and jump with happiness in your ver own room.
