If there were any justice in this world, the Queers would sell as many records as Green Day or Blink 182, or any other of the "pop-punk" bands that have hit the major label lottery. Fear not though, they'll remain a seminal underground band that we can hold dear to our hearts. "Punk Rock Confidential" is a great album featuring Joe's famous mix of Ramones-meets-Beach Boys style songs. It's refreshing to know that a seasoned punk rocker like Joe Queer realizes that melody and good lyrics are essential components to a good, timeless song. Some of these songs spew sarcastic venom, and some are sappier than sap, and that's what makes it great. Who says a cynic can't be a hopeless romantic? I hear Joe's recording a solo album and I hope he embraces his influences whole-heartedly (a la Mike Ness) and records his definitive work. In the meantime, have a few beers, listen to "Punk Rock Confidential" or "Don't Back Down," and enjoy your life. Cheers.

Punk Rock Confidential is no doubt the unofficial sequel (in terms of songwriting talent) to previous Lookout! breakthrough "Don't Back Down". PRC is just amazing. As with any album, it may take some time to get used to, but sooner or later, fans and non-fans alike will build a love for this 15+ track collection of love, attitude, and carefree songs. This excellent lineup consists of frontman Joe Queer, guitarist Dangerous Dave, bassist Chris Almighty (of John Cougar Concentration Camp fame) and Steve Stress beatin' the skins. Songs that really stick out are "Tamara's a Punk", "Everything's OK", "Like a Parasite", and the title track, but every song is awesome in its own way. A must-buy, especially if you like Don't Back Down.

This album is a good one. Most of the songs seem like filler the first couple of listens but if you give it a couple of months, the songs will start to grow on you and you'll love them. In my opinion, the very best song on this whole entire album is "The Sun Always Shines Around You". All of the other songs are great but that one has became one of my favorite songs by The Queers. Compared to "Don't Back Down" and "Love Song For the Retarded" it seems pretty weak but what I keep saying to people is that each Queers album is unique in its own way. If you are new to The Queers I wouldn't get this as your first cd by them. Pick up Love Songs or Don't Back Down first!

I love The Beach Boys, I love the Ramones, I love catchy hooks, and I love origionality. Which gives me a very good reason to love the queers. It's just plain and simply GOOD MUSIC. It's the most fun, laid back, good-to-be-alive music you'll ever find. My favorite songs were "Punk Rock Confidential", "Mrs. Brown, You've Got an ugly daughter", "Today I fell in Love", "Like a Parasite", and "Tamara's a Punk", but all the songs are REALLY-REALLY catchy. It's a good thing their not famous, because I want to be selfish and keep them "my" band, because their so great. Also, they have a good sense of humor, and it looks good in my CD case along with other great bands like Rancid, Propagandhi, Bracket, The Movielife, Green Day, Less Than Jake, and The Bouncing Souls. Buy it, Wonderful.

I know my opinion is unpopular, and that, to some, nothing will ever touch "Love Songs," but it is my opinion that this is the Queers' best album yet. Relying a lot more heavily on 60s-style pop, Joe knocks out hit after hit after hit on this record. This honestly cannot be missed by any Queers fan, or fan of pop music in general.

Great album. I only wish that B-Face and Joe King were on the album. What happened to them? I also don't know why this album is on Hopeless instead of Lookout. Oh well. It's as good as Don't Back Down which is a heck of an album too. Buy it, you won't be dissapointed!
