Reel Big Fish: Turn The Radio Off

Sound — 10
Possibly the greatest ska band of all time, the ony thing is they are not really a ska band on their latest albums. Go back in time though and here is some great ska. It's perfectly balanced between brass and guitars, and rocks! If you like ska you need this album.

Aaron Barret singing is not as powerful back then as it is now, but his voice does compliment the ska very well. His lyrics are famous for his sarcasm, and it is evident in this album.

Overall Impression — 10
Best song without a doubt is 'Sell Out', and you need to hear this song if you haven't. It is in my list of top ten songs of all time. As I've said, if you like ska, you need this album. I wish I could listen to it again for the first time.
