Bassist Josh Moskoviz says the sophomore release from the Goodwill is different than their first album, which was "pop-punk." He says the addition of a new guitarist allowed the band to develop a sound for Insult, Injury, Etc... that "still maintains the poppiness and catchiness, only with a darker, more hard-edged, unique sound." Maybe I'm not getting it, because even after a few listens, it was clear to me that the Goodwill still has some growing to do before they fit their bad-boy britches. A number of the tracks on the disc feature aggressive guitar and percussion that, unfortunately, clashes with the vocals. Brian Barbuto strains at times to match the intensity of the sound around him, something that is most obvious in "To Live And Die On LI." The track features strong percussion reminiscent of Bad Religion, but the vocals don't quite measure
up. Judging from the band's MySpace site, the kids are really digging the
pop-punk sound, and it might be smart to stick with a recipe that works.
