The Vandals

Look What I Almost Stepped In (2000)


Just for a moment,I'm gonna throw out my eternal alegience to the first punk band I ever saw live and whose shirt I'm wearing right now, and review their new album as if I had just heard them for the first time. This album is fucking hilarious. "Behind the Music" starts the album with a rippin' guitar part from Mutant Boy and Dave's lyrics about trying to go huge but failing in the end crack me up every time. "Go",the third track, is the fastest song and easily the best. It really showcases Josh Freeze's amazing talent on the drums. "Jackass" is the pop-punk song on LWIASI, and "Fourteen" is by far the funniest. "We can't make love because you're fourteen!" HA! That's crude humor at it's best. Another cool song is "Sorry Mom and Dad". Overall, this is an awesome punk album, and could just as easily fit in the comedy section at your local CD megastore. If you've been a Vandals fan since junior high like me, this album won't dissappoint. If you've never heard the Vandals but enjoy bands like Blink-182 and Lit, don't even think about getting this album cause the Vandals are WAY too cool for you.
