As a music reviewer, I feel a certain obligation to give everything a fair shake. I try my hardest to listen to everything that is put in front of me and pass a fair judgement on it. Someone took the time to create this music I am hearing, so the least I can do is listen. Right? This brings me.

As a music reviewer, I feel a certain obligation to give everything a fair shake. I try my hardest to listen to everything that is put in front of me and pass a fair judgement on it. Someone took the time to create this music I am hearing, so the least I can do is listen. Right?

This brings me to the new Snowdogs CD - the first CD I've ever had to review that I couldn't even listen to all the way through. In the hundreds of CDs I have listened to for potential review, they have all at least played once from start to finish. This record wins the "Good god, isn't this song over yet? Time to hit the skip button" award. It's the inaugural winner.

So what's it sound like?

Crap, mostly.

Snowdogs seems to be made up of three middle-aged men who long for the days of arena rock but are trying to adapt to pop punk and radio alt rock [and, inexplicably, ska on a few songs]. This album has absolutely no flow - every song is different from the one before, and they're all so bad that it's nearly impossible to stomach. Avoid this CD at all costs.

This honestly might be the worst CD I've ever heard in my life.

er... honestly, this stuff ain't that bad. If this is the worst CD the reviewer ever heard, he can't have heard that much stuff in his days... (which he should since he is a reviewer)

A nice break from all the heavy punk rock? What has Mxpx's newest been a little too pummeling for you? WHAT THE FUCK. DONT TALK IF YOUR GOING TO SAY SOMETHIN SO ENORMOUSLY STUPID.

I cant even think that last comment was so dumb. Im done.

This band and all its fans should eat a motherfucking bullet.

Ok, believe me or not, but I like this album very much! It's a nice thing between al the heavy punkrock! It sounds fresh, catchy as hell, happy and the songs are real sing-alongs. Or is that a bad thing? And in every song, you can hear something new, which is, according to me, a compliment and not a bad hing like the reviewer from this cd tried to claim. Nice job dudes, go on!

call me crazy but i actually liked their first album. i've only heard the two songs off this cd, but its certainly not worth all the bashing you guys are giving it

The score is for the comments, best ones I've read in a review. ZING!

if wuss hates this, it must be amazing. he has the worst taste in music i've ever seen.

graynoisenet (February 2, 2003)

yes sir... this cd sucks... out of all the cd's I get, about one out of every twenty is something that is actually worth listening to. I don't know what the hype about this band is. It's redundant, boring and annoying!

Oh and to the guy commenting about snapcase being boring... you are a nutbar!

Bennifer Loffleck! I love it! I hate that stupid chick, everything she wears is some living creature, what an ignorant bitch.

rightcliqificus (January 31, 2003)

remember that movie "milo and otis" that was a kickass movie. all the sex and heavy metal, not to mention all the beheadings. Somebody out there probably has a band called "Milo and Otis" and I'd totally love them no matter what they sound like. It's just the sexiest band name I've ever heard. I don't want to sound like a queer or nothing, but I think Benji is kick ass. and i'm talking about the dog, not Bennifer Loffleck.

snapcase a boring live show? holy hell, thats slander. and wanting to go to milemarker instead....yikes. thin ice my friend.

to the guy who asked, this band did open for alk3 and face to face, luckily i missed most of them, but what i did they sucked out loud.

yellowtrash (January 30, 2003)

isn't Snowdogs a movie starring Cuba Gooding Jr.?

jheisel (January 30, 2003)

yeah, i used to have a couple snapcase cds, but they get real uninteresting real quick. try dillinger escape plan or refused.

oh, i saw snapcase play in chicago once. also pretty boring. i can't believe i skipped out on milemarker to go to that shiz.....

check out their website, its utter shite. reminds me of a BBC. i refuse to download these songs. strangely lots of magazines liked their debut record.

Anonymous (January 29, 2003)

A question. Alk3 played with Face to Face in London, March last year. did these guys open?

WussEmoRock (January 29, 2003)

Victory did put out something good....

AFTER THE FUCKING EULOGY.

yea, i must say, the name is a turn off. i've only heard one song from a victory comp, and i didn't compel me to buy any of their music either. just blah.

"Thats a slap to the face to kangaroo jack"

that is without a doubt the funniest thing ive heard all damn day. i actually did laugh out loud. kudos.

"It's just a strange coincidence that the worst band ever shares a name with the worst talking animal movie ever."

I wonder what the chances are of the wuss liking this.

pope_schlomo (January 28, 2003)

Not even a gallon of holy water and a gallon of the blood of Christ can cure this monstrosity. Times like this that I wish punknews.org invented the score 0.

For the record, they didn't get their name from the shitty disney movie. It's just a strange coincidence that the worst band ever shares a name with the worst talking animal movie ever. This shit is pure crap.

I can understand Victory putting out one album by these guys. Maybe their demo didn't suck so bad or something. But a second album? Seriously. What the fuck is Victory thinking?

FortyMinutesWest (January 28, 2003)

Finally something everyone can agree on, this band sucks.

I'm listening to the Average Kid mp3. Sounds like bad Offspring. Not that there is good Offspring.

i love reading these reviews of just plain awful cd's. if a cuba gooding jr. refferance would have been worked in, i may have chuckled mighty hard. hah. talkin dogs at the beach. hilarity.

"oh yeah, wasn't this on victory? has that label ever put anything good out?" answer: yes. try snapcase already. good god.

Anonymous (January 28, 2003)

Their song on Victory Style 5 was easily the worst. And I don't like screaming.

Anonymous (January 28, 2003)

I could see the radio eating this up like oatmeal.....terrible.

jheisel (January 28, 2003)
