Biography

The Bouncing Souls have never been in the New Yorker. The NJ band that has been kicking their singular brand of angular punk-anthems for upwards of 15 years now, are not necessarily what you would classify as critical darlings, but they have something more tangible. The boys have an arsenal of songs that no one in the North East corridor can deny, tracks like Sing Along Forever, Kate Is Great, ... Read more in Amazon's Bouncing Souls Store

5.0 out of 5 stars really appeals to those of us getting older August 2, 2004
By BLuTT
Format:Audio CD
while i think everything the souls have done is great, they suprised me with this one by writing songs that seem to be more "crafted" than "spit out" this time around. and that's a good thing. the ususal underdog themes are here, but with a bit of a feel that indicates that the guys aren't as knee-jerk as they used to be. i'm sure countless reviewers before me have already mentioned the "maturity" present here, and they would be right. this record needed to be made, and i think time will only show how poignant it is. it's one that, 5 years down the line, people will re-discover, like jawbreaker's "dear you". and wonder how they didn't see it as a classic right off the bat. well, because they didn't yet have some of the necessary experiences yet, that's why.

i could break this record down track by track, but the truth is, every song has such a thorough, unique feel to it, they're all keepers. i venture to say that this is arguably the souls' best record, but i am swayed by the fact that it speaks more to fans that are 30 instead of 17 this time around, and i am closer to the former. every record of theirs is special, but this one just has a quality that resonates with me more than ever right now. feeling older or out of touch a bit, maybe? not sure if the souls still do it for ya like they used to, years back? pick this one up and you'll find that they've still got it, and they'll still convince you that you do, too.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad at all December 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like many of the reviewers here, I am a long time Bouncing Souls fan. Their latest album is a definite change from earlier works, but not drastically. It is very similiar to "Summer Vacation", perhaps a bit more laid back. Essentially the biggest change for the band has been a new drummer and a natural progression in Greg's vocals. Their new drummer is obviously much more technically proficient, and the production of the drums on this album and the last is drastically better than previous works. The other big change is that Greg can actually sing now, and you can tell. He trys to do more vocally, and suceeds.
So basically this is a record with a slicker, more professional sound from an older, professional punk bank. Personally I like it and recommend it. And yes they still put on a great live show. Lastly, if for some crazy reason you don't own any Bouncing Souls albums, you really should start with "Manical Laughter" which is their best work IMO.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive! January 4, 2004
By Greg
Format:Audio CD
 I'm thoroughly impressed with this CD . It's nice to see an older band put out a new CD that can hold it's own when compared to "the old classics". When I got it I popped it in and could feel from the first bass plukings off Apartment 5F that it was the Souls, it just had that bouncy rhythm, signature vocals, make you want to chant feel. It got me pumped and ready for the rest. Was I excited? Hell Yeah! Then we hit song two, Kids and Heroes, more killer vocals. On and on it
went till I finally finished, I was amazed I made it through the whole thing with out collapsing from over excitement! All the new stuff was great. I was very impressed.

The one thing that I really noticed was the new drummer. As an earlier reviewer stated he's much different, more precise and different style. He's not bad, just different more aggressive. It changes the Soul's sound a bit, but all in all doesn't really take away that much. Change is a thing of life!
Many people don't like to accept it, but change is what makes life tolerable instead of boring and repetitive.
Stand outs would be Apartment 5F, Sing Along for Ever, Inside Out, Better Days, Night Train, and the title track.

BOTTOM LINE: If you're a Soul's fan defiantly get it! Its great. If you're just getting in to them this is NOT a bad starting point regardless of what others say, but you might want to start with some earlier stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. July 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you are considering the purchase of this album, don't hestitate. It sucks that you do not own it already, but Souls fans are willing to forgive (under conventional circumstances). Anyway, the tracks on Anchors Away not only have the classic amazing Souls lyrics and hooks, but this is the best sounding Souls record yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honest and heartfelt; punk rock at it's finest August 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I suppose the best way to begin a review of the Bouncing Souls' latest record "Anchors Aweigh" is to describe my recent experience at a Souls show here in Toronto. Unlike many of the shows I've been to in the past few years, the one thing that stood out about the show, besides the honest, positive vibe of the band, was the crowd they attracted.
A healthy mix of gutter punks, mohawked and suspendered folks with Sex Pistols T-shirts, sorority girls and skateboarders; what struck me was the completely unifying spirit that the band brought out.
Even though genres and bands have segmented and divided the punk scene into cliques and elitists and people who stare and there shoes and smirk at the Fat and Epitaph bands, the Bouncing Souls seem to exist in a vacuum where none of that had ever happened.
Like they were live, their records are honest, neither musically challenged, nor overwhelmingly technical. Simple punk rock songs like the kind bands played before the Warped Tour; before major labels even cared about our scene.
So, while "Anchors Aweigh" does show a new side of the Souls, at it's core, it's still a bunch of friends who clearly play this music because it moves them, not because it moves records; so even their worst records would be an accomplishment.
As it happens, "Anchors" is not their worst record at all; it is, as the cliched reviewer term goes "a maturing." A darker side of the Souls has definitely come out, but it's still as interesting and exciting as songs about riding a BMX.
If you've never heard the Souls before, they're best described as a return-to-the-roots band. A core of three chord songs, vocals that hover between a shouting and singing, and big loud drums. On "Anchors...
