The sixth installment of the "Fat Music" series of comps since they began firing em' out back in good old 1994, Uncontrollable Fatulence doesn't stray to far from the classic comp formula these days: A few gems, some decent listenable tunes, and (unfortuneately) an equal helping of trash for good me.
The sixth installment of the "Fat Music" series of comps since they began firing em' out back in good old 1994, Uncontrollable Fatulence doesn't stray to far from the classic comp formula these days: A few gems, some decent listenable tunes, and (unfortuneately) an equal helping of trash for good measure. Right from the get go however, I'll say that the amount of unreleased tracks on this CD alone make it well worth the meager price. The enjoyment you'll receive from listening to this will far exceed the enjoyment you'd get from that "super-burger" value meal you ate last night for the same price. Here's a quick breakdown of the tracks...
1. Lawrence Arms - Presenting: The Dancing Machine (Unreleased)
2. Propaghandi - Back to the Motor League (Released)
3. Mad Caddies - Leavin' (Unreleased)
4. Dillinger Four - File Under "Adult Urban Contemporary" (Released)
5. Lagwagon - Never Stops (Unreleased)
6. Strung Out - Your Worst Mistake (Unreleased) Same Strung Out we heard on "American Paradox", interesting chord progressions, great vocals, and one killer chorus make this a stellar track. They retain that "only band on Fat who includes solos" signature as well.
7. Rise Against - Generation Lost (Unreleased)
8. NUFAN - Friends of the Enemy (Released)
9. Avail - Black and Red (Released)
10. Swingin' Utters - Sign in a Window (Unreleased)
11. Less Than Jake - Faction (Released)
12. Freznal Rhomb - Had Enough (Unreleased)
I gotta admit, I was expecting less from these guys. A bit on the poppy side, sweet guitar-intro/riff, and a great chorus. Officially the first track by this band I've ever liked.
13. Anti-Flag - Federation (Unreleased) Standard "we hate the government" fist-pumping "lets go riot" tunes these guys have been churning out forever. Mediocre at best.
14. NOFX - Mattersville (Unreleased)
15. Sick of it All - Built to Last (Live)
16. Wizo - I Hate You (Unreleased)
17. Good Riddance - Yesterday's Headlines (Released)
18. Me First... - Nothing Compares 2 U (Released)
In conclusion, go purchase this, it's well worth the money as I mentioned above. Cheap punk compilations really can't go that wrong.
