Lagwagon - Let's Talk About Feelings

Life's been crappy as of late, I was looking for some good old punk rock to take my mind off things. Plus work sucks, and I needed something fast-paced to give me some energy. Lagwagon comes through. Now, this is an older album in my mp3 collection, ripped back in the day when AWESOME quality mp3s were 128kbps (now it's like variable-320 or something). But the good thing about punk (in my opinion) is even if the recording is somewhat shitty, it's still punk rock. In any case, the quality is by no means bad, or I wouldn't post it. But trust me, this album is awesome. Joey Cape is one of my favorite punk singers of all time, and he definitely delivers on every single track. This is definitely a classic album. The pace is quick (with some notable exceptions), and the music is delivered home with an abundance of energy and emotion. You really believe what Joey is singing, with the utmost conviction and appeal to the listener. I can't sing it's praises enough, and if I were still doing the rating thing, I would definitely give it at 10/10. If you don't have it, get it. It's low compression, so the file is like 35mb, and 25 minutes of pure bliss...there's no excuse. And if you're breaking up with someone, it'll definitely make you feel better.
