Hey y'all this is my first review ever, so it will probably suck which is the total opposite of this album. The first time I heard of this band was at the Goldfinger website.

Hey y'all this is my first review ever, so it will probably suck which is the total opposite of this album. The first time I heard of this band was at the Goldfinger website. And it said that John Feldmann (Goldfinger's frontman) recently produced a record for Mest. I was thinking "Who the hell is Mest?" So I downloaded a song by them. After I heard "Drawing Board" (The song I downloaded) I loved it, so I went out to the record store and bought this cd. Well, as I listen to it right now, about a half a year after I first bought it, it is still as great as when I first heard it.
"Wasting Time" by Mest is a great cd if you are a fan of Showoff or Goldfinger. It sounds an awful lot like Showoff, but I personally find better. I find this album would fit into the punk/ska genre. Although there are no horns on this album, there are alot of ska upstrokes on certain tracks.To give you a good idea of the songs on this cd and what they are all about, I will review every song:
1)Long Days Long Nights- An ok song, the first few times you hea it, it is great, but I find it becomes more boring to listen to the more you listen to it.
Ok, yeah so this review is done pretty much. I know it probably sucked but whatever this is my first and the main thing is that the album does not suck. I suggest you go buy this record like... now! Mest also have a new album coming out in January 2002 titled "Destination Unknown." You can go get the MP3 of the first single of that cd at Mest's official website! Thanks.
