AIR HOCKEY CHAMPION
(Site) Not much to distinguish this record from countless other melodic punk releases, other than the cheesy keyboards, which sound like a cross between my old Atari game and the New Wave noodlings of Thomas Dolby. They start off with their own tedious version of the Theme from The Lord of the Rings, but after that they throw in some honest to goodness hooks. The standout track is the final one, "Maria Como", a bona fide sing-a-long rave-up, which, other than the LOTR theme, is the only song not written by the band. It was written by their producer, Dave Pino, who’s the leader of Waltham ’s Damone. Of their own originals, the best one by far is the humorous "Loser Boyfriend". Not bad for kids, but not great. – Brian Mosher
