I can't believe I'm about to write what I'm about to write. Forever the Sickest Kids, perennial competitor for worst band name of the year, have released one of the most energetic and enjoyable albums of this calendar year. Don't believe me? Understandable. But I challenge -- no, I implore you to.
I can't believe I'm about to write what I'm about to write.
It's been three days straight, with the sheets and your pillow / The clock on the wall's a reminder, of my father and his integrity / I know that I shouldn't let it get to me, but it does / Who am I kidding with a dead end job and lack of a familyPop-punk bands aren't usually looked at to be bastions of maturity, but Forever the Sickest Kids' songwriting ability is beyond most of their genre peers, and the same can be said of some of the lyrical themes on the album. Some may write the group off as being a clone of this band or that band, but the simple fact is that Underdog Alma Mater is nothing if not a very enjoyable way to spend 40 minutes of your time.
