A Kid's Review
This review is from: War on Errorism (Audio CD)
Sheist, I was looking at all the reviews and there seems to be so much negativity toward the entire anti-Bush cause. Sure, looking at the tracklisting of the Rock Against Bush compilations, some of these bands (New Found Glory, Yellowcard) never cared about anything before and are just jumping the "political" bandwagon because it looks promising.
But this is NOT the way with NOFX. NOFX have always been a political band. Just listen to "Perfect Government" or "180 Degrees." Sure, they got a little more political on this record just like many other solid underground punk bands out there. This is what punk rock is all about. The entire underground punk community is now united in a common cause, with a common enemy. Punk is supposed to be a method of free expression, and that's exactly what these bands are doing.
Anyway, getting on to the album review, they obviously tried to make a second Punk In Drublic. It falls short, but every punk record other than SLATFATS falls short to Punk In Drublic. War On Errorism is actually pretty damn good for what it is. This is a great introduction album for someone new to NOFX. I highly reccomend it, though you should purchase Punk In Drublic, SLATFATS and The Decline first.
