5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Candy Coated Fury! August 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The year was 1996. At a mere 10-years-old, my 13-year-old brother brought home a CD from this band called Reel Big Fish. The CD was called "Turn The Radio Off," and the first song was this incredibly fast, unbelievably catchy song called "Sell Out". I had never heard this type of music before... It was like Punk, but ... with horns? I was immediately hooked. I would later get a portable CD player and bring it with me on those long, boring bus-rides to and from school. Other kids on the bus would ask what I was listening to, and, like most kids looking to show-off, I would gladly oblige in letting them have a listen. Most everyone ended up liking the music I was listening to... Some of my friends started to like this "Ska" music as much, if not more, than myself. Eventually, of course, my tastes expanded, and I discovered other amazing bands, like Less Than Jake and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, among others...

I ended up falling in love with Ska ... and it seemed like so many others were in-step.

In the early 2000's, I started noticing that, well ... not many people seemed to enjoy music with horns anymore. I seemed to be an outcast of sorts for not following the trends of popular music. Don't get me wrong, however; by no means did my musical horizons become stagnant to that solely of Ska. I just have always kept a partial heart towards the music I grew up with ... and the bands that I associate so many memories with.

16-years later, on August 6th, 2012 (almost 16-years-to-the-day of the release of "Turn The Radio Off"), I am now an Electrical Engineering student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville ... and can you guess what album I've been awaiting the release of for, oh, say, about five years?

5.0 out of 5 stars everybody's doin the fish...still! August 13, 2012
By Pam
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So I'm going to go ahead and admit right here, this is probably not a great first introduction to the fish but if your used to and enjoy a happy sounding album, with crude lyrics- this is something that most fish fans area already well familiar with- I'm sure you will enjoy Candy Coated Fury.

Even as a 30 yr old woman in a wonderful marriage with a normal boring office job, I really enjoy heading out to the fish shows and singing loud to some song that drops more f-bombs in 2 minutes than I drop in a year outside of their shows, with people in the crowd randomly pointing at strangers & the band they love and yelling f-you and making friends with the same people moments later. My iPod is full of these type of RBF songs and when someone has annoyed me at work, I enjoy it just as much on the way home. There is something wonderfully cathartic about doing something so ridiculous, with musical style that emphasizes just how ridiculous it is. If that sounds horrible to you, then you might not be ready for the fish army.

This album embraces being a big ol dork. If you want to be mistaken for someone cool or mature when someone hears your music, you might pass on this too. I personally will continue to embrace all the nerd factor that comes with the fish. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best albums August 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, this album is their greatest since their 1998 release Why Do They Rock So Hard. Compared to more pop-based radio-friendly releases like Cheer Up and Monkeys For Nothing, this album rather than moving away from the band's roots (like many other bands do) actually moves much closer to their roots.

This album captures the classic 90's ska sound of Why Do They Rock So Hard with some of the aggressiveness in their overall sound that made We're Not Happy a great album while still having catchy hooks and an overall lightness about it, despite being a hardcore album.

The lyrics are more important in this album. In some of their previous albums, the lyrics were fillers simply to accompany the sound, but in this album, they are more meaningful. They are still talking about failed relationships and hating on those who had done them wrong. And in every song, Reel Big Fish seems to accurately describe real life situations that we relate to and deal with on a daily basis. This album is a bit misanthropic, but it never seemed as jealous and hateful as the lyrics in We're Not Happy, nor are they sarcastically passive aggressive as in Cheer Up. Rather, the mood is perfectly appropriate.

Many people may question why Reel Big Fish actually stepped backward in time with this album, abandoning the soft pop-punk sound while other 90's bands in this century are doing the opposite. But fans will enjoy this sound that is both nostalgic and familiar, yet worlds apart from anything that they have done.

5.0 out of 5 stars What should've came out after turn the radio off August 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is the reel big fish that I remember. If you like turn the radio off, you will like this album. It has that summer of ska sound to it with some minor hints of "why do they rock so hard?"

4.0 out of 5 stars A great return to form! September 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a really really big fan of Reel Big Fish since 1997 when I first heard the song "Everything Sucks" from their 1996 album "Turn the Radio off". That fantastic collection of songs was followed up in 1998 with "Why Do They Rock So Hard?" which was even greater... a 5 1/2 star album. Both of those two aforementioned albums contained loads of catchy bouncy silly sarcastic ska punk songs which I listened to non-stop for months and months. In fact I still enjoy them today!

The next full-length album Reel Big Fish released was "Cheer Up" released in 2002. It was also a very good album, but just didn't quite meet the high standards set by the two prior releases. I would never suggest skipping "Cheer Up" to anyone who's discovering the band, but I would warn them not to expect the same exceptional quality of music found on "Turn The Radio Off" and "Why Do They Rock So Hard?". Don't get me wrong though, "Cheer Up" is still lots of fun.

Reel Big Fish has had several other releases in the last few years like 2005's "We're Not Happy Til' You're Not Happy", 2007's "Monkey's For Nothin' and the Chimps For Free", their 2009 collection of covers "Fame Fortune and Fornication", their 2010 collection of re-recorded hits and fan favorites "The Best Of Us For The Rest Of Us" and 2006's live album "Our Live Album Is Better Than Your Live Album".
Not a single one of those albums I just mentioned, nor any of the other collections or singles they've released since "Cheer Up" have really been any better than an average 2 1/2 star review.

Candy Coated Fury is a return to form for the band, which I might mention, now only has 2 of the original band members. The songs from this release are upbeat, fun, silly, and catchy just like their earlier releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great
I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this cd up. I love RBF but wasn't thrilled with Monkeys for Nothing and the Chimps for Free or Fame, Fortune and Fornication. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Comeback to Ska
Great comeback to the sound of ska, and not nearly as much rock. Worth purchasing if you are a RBF fan or newbie.
