I listened and reviewed the new 3upFront record for our zine. These guys have been around playing since 1998.
Couple of years later, hehe here is the new full length record. Hailing from Santa Cruz, California, these guys are playing melodic skatepunk and this 19 songs are not unlike Good Riddance, especially in one of my favorite songs on this record, This Time, song with great drive and nice melodic anthemic chorus, vocals also remind me of Russ Rankin in this song. Besides punk there are reggae influences in That Song, but I don˙t know, this song and half of other songs on this record did not work well with my ear. I love straightforward punk songs like Fantasia or Whoa Bundy, as you can see there is a lot of humour and auto irony in the lyrics to the songs, many varied parts in the music that show these guys definitely can play, but in my opinion something is just missing in this record to be great one. 7/10
