(review) THE FLY DOWNS – At This Point In Time

It´s been a long time since I listened to some good pop punk and The Fly Downs released their new full length, so it was about time for me to enjoy some great melodic punk. Trio from Ottawa released 13 songs on this record. Music is melodic punk leaning more heavily on pop punk influences than on faster skate punk side of things. That means punk rock guitar riffs with strong and fantastic melodies, sweet vocal lines that I love and backing vocal harmonies and above all good songs. My personal favorites are Raving Reviews, Crashing Down and Nowhere To Go somehow the most on this record. Vocals remind me at times of Russ Rankin of Good Riddance especially at faster awesome songs like Head Held High, one of the songs having more faster almost a bit hardcore punk vibe. Lyrics are personal but, some songs are pure fun, but I can totally relate to most of them. Go listen this great album.
