Some months ago, I learned that No Fun at All were going to play in Athens. They had a reunion and their new album Low Rider coming out. I only knew like four or five songs at that time and they seemed nice, so i decided to check out the band. I liked them, went to the live show and was amazed even .

Some months ago, I learned that No Fun at All were going to play in Athens. They had a reunion and their new album Low Rider coming out. I only knew like four or five songs at that time and they seemed nice, so i decided to check out the band. I liked them, went to the live show and was amazed even more. They have amazing melodies and fast pace similar to my favourite Californian-style hardcore punk / melodic hardcore.

So I decided to review this as it is their only album that has no review here. Together with their first full-length, No Straight Angles, it is my favourite one of theirs. Their latest three albums are definitely worth checking too, but they lack the big number of amazing tracks on this and NSA. Out of Bounds is their second full-length and was released in 1995. It contains the fan favourites "Master Celebrator," "In a Rhyme" and "Beat Them Down," as well as some of my personal favourites: "Invitation," "Stranded," "Perfection," "I Have Seen" and...actually, there's no bad song here -- all are amazing or good.

If you like any of their other albums you're gonna love this one and its sound is closer to No Straight Angles than any of the rest. If you don't know them but like bands like Bad Religion, Pennywise, Deviates, early Millencolin and early Offspring, they are worth checking, and this is one of the best albums to start with.

One of the best punk rock/melodic hardcore albums EVER!

It's amazing how this record was surpassed by the Big Knockover. Really amazing.

One of my favourite albums of all time. Fuckin' amazing record, with "Perfection", "In A Moment", "Don't Pass Me By" or "In A Rhyme" (probably) being my favourite songs. About time someone reviewed some of the absolute gems from the Burning Heart Records back catalogue - almost every single record BHR put out from 1993 to about 1998 were pure gold.

Great to see these guys are still going. Looking forward to the show with the Flatliners coming up in March.

The first 4 and the last song on Big Knockover are amazing, but the rest are okish, so i like the first 2 records more. Low Rider comes 3rd imo as average song quality, even if it has less amazing songs than The Big Knockover. On the poppier State of Flow 3-4 songs are great and the rest not bad but it comes last overall in my preferance. About the vocals, they were a little anoying to me at first too, but when you get used you'll love them.

AlChron77 (December 18, 2009)

This is a good record, but my favorite is still The Big Knockover
