The Ataris: So Long, Astoria

Sound — 8
There are no interesting guitar parts like in 'Blue skies, broken hearts, next 12 exits...' instead just a few fast songs, a few slow songs and just about the best cover of 'Boys of summer' you'll ever hear. The drumming can be boring but I just tend to listen to the lyrics of this album.

Great. The lyrics are great on this album. Lively in some songs and sad in others. The lyrics match the guitar parts perfectly.

Overall Impression — 8
This is a great album by the ataris. The songs link up to each other very well and a lot of effort is put into each song. There are even bonus tracks from some of their old albums. Everyone loves bonus tracks. My advice is buy this album whether you like the ataris or not, and listen to the lyrics and sing along. They are quite catchy. There is no point learning the guitar parts for this album as they are nothing special though.
