In “Welcome to the Record II: Electric Boogaloo,” Canadian jokesters the Hextalls proclaim over a mid-tempo piano-based crawl that “We’ve gotten old and now we’re slowing down.” Ten seconds later the track explodes into one of the group’s standard pop-punk chugs, but there is a feeling of maturation throughout the group’s latest full-length Rock You to Sleep, at least musically. The lyrics are still as stupid as ever (Kenny Rogers is namedropped all over the place for some reason), but hooks are sharper and more deliberate, and the band plays tighter than needed.
