Editorial Reviews

THE BEATLES. CARLOS SANTANA. NORAH JONES. BOWLING FOR SOUP. Musical heavyweights, yes. But what do these acts actually have in common? They've all been nominated for Grammys. Yep, Bowling For Soup, the rockers from Wichita Falls, Texas, scored a nomination in 2003 in the Best Performance Pop By a Duo or Group category for their power-pop sing-along "Girl All the Bad Guys Want." The Grammys are just part of the continuing success story for the band with the unforgettable name. OK, so they lost. But joking aside, the nomination did open a lot of doors. Before the group started recording their third record for Jive, A Hangover You Don't Deserve, singer Jaret Reddick created a wish list of songwriters & producers he wanted to work with, including members of Fastball, Nerf Herder, Sugar Ray, the Nixons, SR-71 & Butch Walker, their longtime producer. Thanks in part to their Grammy nod, everyone said yes. The seventeen tracks that make up A Hangover You Don't Deserve show off a remarkable amount of musical growth. That's growth, not maturity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great feel-good album if you have a sense of humor January 16, 2005
By Lucy
Format:Audio CD
A Hangover You Don't Deserve is a great, fun album. I really wish more people would give it a chance. "1985" is a great song, but I think that the album has a lot of songs that people would like, but they will never hear them because they can't get past "1985."

1. "Almost" - This is is the most catchy song on the album, and that's really saying a lot because they are all pretty catchy. The verses are really witty, and you'll be singing the chorus in your head for weeks.

2. "Trucker Hat" - At first I wasn't really into this song, but then I started liking it more and more. It's really funny how the relate a love song to a trucker hat. Only Bowling For Soup could that. The chorus is really catchy too.

3. "1985" - You've all heard it. Not much to say about it.

4. "Get Happy" - This song is okay. It's a typical non-single BFS song. I like the chorus more than I like the verses.

5. "Ohio (Come Back To Texas)" - This song is one of the funniest on the album. It's a good song to listen to when you're in need of a laugh because you miss someone who left you.

6. "Ridiculous" - This is just a nice acoustic song.

7. "Shut-Up And Smile" - This song has a really good message: "all we need is some ice cream and a hug." It just tells everyone that we all need to just chill and love everyone. Stop worrying about how bad life is when it really isn't bad at all.

8. "Last Call Casuality" - I think a lot of people can probably relate to this song being on either the side of getting drunk calls in the middle of the night or being the who is doing the calling. Bowling For Soup turns this crazy situation into a fun song.

9. "Next Ex-Girlfriend" - I don't really have much to say about this song.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three-and-a-HALF stars for this BFS goodness. September 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I discovered Bowling For Soup at a Tower Records listening station almost two years ago, when their last album "Drunk Enough To Dance" was released. I heard "Girl All The Bad Guys Want" and based on that one song, bought the album. I loved the blend of bouncy New Found Glory/Blink-182 rock with the self-deprecating, comedic sensibilities of Barenaked Ladies.

This album continues that same musical style, without too much change. I think the songs on the prior album are better overall than the songs on this one. But there are some corkers here, and I can guarantee you at least five full-on belly laughs and dozens of chuckles, all while bopping your head pleasantly along to well performed and sweetly produced music.

"1985" is the breakout "hit" single, and if there is a "classic" BFS sound, this is it. Yes it's a little "novelty"-ish...but it's SO well done and super catchy to boot. The chorus is instantly memorable, and you'll be humming it immediately.

The opening track, "Almost" is terrific too. Again, it's a brisk, uptempo rocker sung with brio by their adenoidal lead singer.

That is not a criticism. It's a character trait. His voice lends an authenticity to some of the story-songs, and you feel that you yourself could be singing these songs just as well. Except you can't. His singing shows more craft to it upon subsequent listenings, with an artful turn here or a particularly powerful note there. His range isn't huge, but he uses it well. The harmonies are nicely done as well. The same goes for the singing on Blink-182's last album. Both underrated.

The guitars, bass and drums thrash along fine...these guys are a seasoned band, and play effortlessly together.

"Ohio (Come Back To Texas)" is an out-and-out riot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Original. December 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
On, A HANGOVER YOU DON'T DESERVE, Bowling For Soup has a style reminscent of 80s pop bands they seem to be parodying. The cd has a lot of twisted, bizarre, and quirky songs. I purchased this album solely because of the song "1985". It's such a catchy little ditty. But, many of the song on the album also are. In fact, besides "1985" its hard to decide which songs deserve special mention. I guess I particularly liked:


"Trucker Hat"

"Ohio (Come Back to Texas)"


"Last Call Casualty"

"Smoothie King"

Bowling For Soup's songs aren't going to be enjoyed by everyone. However, on this ablum they provided me a little bit of 80s nostaligia which has introduced me to their clever and original style that is so fresh in today's popular music scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get ready to sing along November 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking for deep lyrics or diverse melodies, you won't find them here, but A Hangover You Don't Deserve contains some of the best sing along songs I've heard in a long time. This set of songs is cute; amusing lyrics, catchy tunes... You can't help getting them stuck in your head. 1985 was a perfect single and it's not even the best song on the album. My favorite songs are Trucker Hat, Next Ex-Girlfriend, and Really Might Be Gone, but there's really not a bad one. If you like pop rock, you'll adore this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums I have heard in a long time October 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I will admit that until "1985" I had never heard of Bowling for Soup, but I have to say that I am now a fan. This entire album is great, with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and lively tunes! I hope these guys blast through the stratosphere and I look forward to listening to their past and future productions.

Got it for 1985 (naturally) but fell in love with them from the rest of the album. Far superior to Drunk Enough to Dance, this should have made them bigger stars than it did. Read more
