Big D And The Kids Table, a ska band from Boston, Mass., released this album Good Luck after gaining recognition with their earlier release Shot By Lammi (a split CD with Drexel).

This CD was a lot better than I thought it would be before I bought it. I had a quick listen to it earlier and thought it was just mediocre, but it came to be something more than that. This disc has quite a few songs that have the ability to get your blood moving. High points on the CD include "Myself," fan favorites "5 Kids Down" and "Fatman," "She Won't Ever Figure It Out," Big D's apparent drinking song "Find Out," and "51 Gardner." Other good songs are "G.L.D.," "Take Another Look," and "Can't Be Caught."

For people who have not heard of this band, I strongly recommend that you buy this album first. It's a good CD that basically defines Big D's sound. Any other fan of third wave ska, skacore, or ska-punk should definitely considering buying this album too.

great album! lots of energy. Psyco ska at its finest

It's good, but I prefer How It Goes, The Gipsy Hill EP, and their half of the Shot by Lammi split more.

And this review sucked. Too short. But this is coming from someone who writes insanely long reviews.

what a shitty review. "here is a list of songs you might enjoy off of this record. i will say nothing about them, but i will list them. me likem big d."
best big d album by far.

Big D is a stupid band that makes albums way too long for their own good.

There, that's my review!

I've already said my piece in their last review. These guys still hate blacks. The shit they were dropping was unreal. FUCK THESE RACIST MOTHERFUCKERS!

"This score is for the music scene of Allston, where Big D is from.

Close, but no cigar. Put some research and thought into it.

ALLSTON PRIDE! '

They tell everyone every five seconds that they're from Boston at their shows, even in Boston. Allston sucks, so I can understand why.

I like Good Luck, but even Shot By Lammi was better than this.

Great record. Crappy review.

Does anyone screen these reviews? Damn...

fucking good band, fucking bad review

opivykid (December 3, 2004)

This review is fucking awful. Just a 7? Are you deaf?

Anonymous (December 3, 2004)

Pretty good record. It deserves a better review than this though.

Can't be caught is the best song on here. So Badass.

Much better than their new one. Still no "who is, this is" though.

"I came across the reviews for this band and upon seeing no review for this CD I instantly decided it needed one."

Unfortunately I didn't have the energy to actually review it so I thought I'd just list a few of the songs and see if it would stll get posted.

Please Punknews, don't post shit that's as shit as this shit. Shit. The review not the band. Big D is OK.

Anonymous (December 3, 2004)

I actually think "How It Goes" is better than "Good Luck". It's more catchy and thought through... They matured a lot. Asian Man is my favorite label though.

Oh yeah this review was kinda blech. Needs more detail, dude.

Well I'm not forcing you to read them.

They're long, yes, I like to make a compelling case for buying the album, or staying away from it as the case may be.

I'm not going to buy anything after a review like this.

To each his own, I suppose.

Anonymous (December 3, 2004)

score is for any review by anchors

(theyre way too long dude)

bizzlebrizzle (December 3, 2004)

So we give As I Lay Crying a 9 and Big D a 7?

Oh fuck you asshats.

_Sexy_Pants_ (December 3, 2004)

Upon seeing a review for this album I decided it was better off without one. Let's see what you wrote:

I didn't like this CD, then I listened again. Here are the best songs. OK Bye

Anchors (December 3, 2004)

*Put.

Anchors (December 3, 2004)

That took me like 45 seconds to read.

But some fucking thought into it.
