Deep down, secretly, it's every music critic's dream to have a quote from their review used on some shoddy sticker featured on the cover of an album. It's a fine line between journalistic integrity and cashing in. You need to be somewhat critical or your opinion holds no weight, but no one wants a critique of an album on the cover. With that said, I'm cashing in my cred for a chance at glory, as the living sound bite for the Reaganomics' Get Lost, Stay Lost.

Get Lost, Stay Lost is basically the Descendents and Teenage Bottlerocket riding a lawnmower powered by rocket fuel through your local mall (just like in Dead Alive/Braindead). It's not smooth, it's not pretty, it's fast, it's destructive and it kills everything in its path. College students? Dead. Your boss? Dead. Uppity punx? Dead. Trend-jumping hipsters? Dead before they reach the next trend.

It's not all doom and gloom, though. There are songs about cats, dogs, nachos and even you best friend. He's a bear. He tried to eat your legs...but you're cool now. That sounds happy and if you don't think so, it's probably because you're a dick.

Don't like the song? Don't bother skipping it because it'll be over in a second anyway. Like the song? Just let it play through and start over--the whole album is like 20 minutes. Don't like fun? Get fucked. Your best friend is a bear...sleep with one eye open. (Note: Dear Red Scare, put that whole thing on the cover... Please.)

Guys: REAGANOMICS is ex-RYAN'S HOPE.

Good stuff. Get into it.

pinkerton (May 20, 2010)

yeah, but Descendents and Teenage Bottlerocket have dudes who can sing. The vocals on this blow.

Heh heh, sweet review.

Dante3000 (May 20, 2010)

No album with songs about nachos is worth more than a seven.
Worst justification for lowering a score, ever.

love these dudes, but Ryan's Hope > The Reaganomics.

punker001 (May 19, 2010)

awesome band and a gr8 album

And my best friend is a bear, and we get along just fine, but it started kinda rocky, cause he tried to eat my leg, oh yeaaaah.
I'd rather hang out with a bear who tries to eat my leg than go back to the modern world.

Coming out of wilderness, that song blew my fucking mind. Awesome, awesome album. Pop-punk at its finest; jaded and emotional and silly and ironic and peppy and grrrrrreeeeeeaaaat.

I like the album, but I will never love it because it's too short.

darbystrummer77 (May 18, 2010)
