The Descendents - Somery


Last time I posted the Descendents was 'Milo Goes To College', which is still my favorite of theirs but this album here is a great compilation of their best. Although I am guessing they feel bit sad about bands that have come after them using their formula - quick, poppy songs about love, life and being young, etc. and having the new bands basically .... suck. You cannot fault the originals for the low quality of the knock-offs - look at how many bands cite The Ramones as a great influence and listen to the crap those bands are putting out. Sure, they are some adolescent moments on here, but they were very young then, after all so things like 'Enjoy!', 'I Wanna Be A Bear' (with the famous "I wanna smell your muff!" should be listened to and enjoyed in their particular context. Without reproach or explanations needed are songs like 'Bikeage', 'Hope', Good Good Things' and many more on this selection. Classics and a class act here for you people - see them live soon if you can.
