New Found Glory

From the Screen to Your Stereo (2000)


Okay, I admit it: I like this EP, and I am a New Found Glory fan. They're the only mainstream pop-punk band I like any more. They're just a guilty pleasure of mine.

That being said, I find the music on "From the Screen to Your Stereo" easy to swallow. While the band obviously fails in comparison to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, they still put forth a decent effort of movie theme cover songs.

From the second their version of "That Thing You Do" starts, I'm hooked. They also offer nice tracks like "Never Ending Story Theme Song", and "My Heart Will Go On". Soft spots on the CD's seven tracks are Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and that song from The Goonies.

But as a whole, it still offers plenty of catchy choruses, crisp guitar work, and nostalgia aplenty. They're just fun rock songs. Nothing more, nothing less. If you don't look to deeply into it, then you should enjoy yourself. This is also a must-have for fans of the "Punk Goes..." compilation series.
