I've said it before and i'll gladly repeat myself.
Full respect to NFG, over 12 years as a band, who knows how many more as friends. 9 great CDs, thousands of shows, and still the same five members as the day they got going (ok rumour is there was a different drummer before the name was even settled, he lasted 3 weeks - still wanna split hairs?).
this EP the latest chapter in this pop-punk - with recent leanings of the hardcore - is as worth while as the rest, sure its only a handful of songs, including two covers, but they are producing themselves, and doing a good job. Jordons voice has come along way, they are still catchy... and on this CD they have a new sound of hardcore punk with the fast drums and gang vocals.
while its all short and over before you noticed your feet were tapping there is always disc 2. thats right! disc 2...
this is NOT new found glory. much like the foxboro hot tubs "oh its really green day"... no, just like the FBHT/GD debate, the only thing the bands share are the same members, they are not the same bands.
in this disc, jordon plays guitar while guitarist (one of two) Chad takes the mic.
each song is between 40 seconds and just under 2 minutes, the lyrics are hilarious, personal favourites are seat belt and dirty mouth! this album is only 15 minutes long but this is an advantage no song is on long enough to get sick of or skip and its so much fun you'd end up playing it 3 or 4 times!
for me this is a great sign of things to come!
