Imagine that you made a mix tape of the following bands; Bad Religion, Blink 182, Pennywise, and Sublime and that’s a pretty good idea what listening to Authority Zero’s new album was like. This band out of Arizona plays a really good mix of skate/pop/ska punk usually never allowing two songs in a row to sound the same and occasionally changing styles in the middle of a song. The lyrics though out mostly follow the skate punk staple of doing your own thing and overcoming struggles (“Passage In Time [listen to the verse in this one and tell me that it doesn’t sound like it was taken directly from “Society”],” “Over Seasons” and “Everyday”), but others have the need to fall back on silly-dumb lyrics (“Super Bitch” and “Good Old Days”) which just seemed to distract from the decent music earlier. This band also mixes up styles and languages on “LA Surf” which is a Dick Dale sounding song sung entirely in Portuguese.
