The Ataris - Blue Skies, Broken Hearts...Next 12 Exits

I feel ashamed of myself that I haven't posted this album yet. This is probably one of my favorite albums of all-time partly because I started listening to them in high school, and all of these songs really hit home back then. Plus The Ataris/The Vandals were my first real punk show, which I was pretty lucky to be indoctrinated into the scene watching those bands live. You can get a sense that Kris Roe and company packed so much emotion and energy into this album, and hopefully you can connect to it like I did back in the day.
