Good Riddance
The Phenomenon of Craving (Fat Wreck Chords)

By: Alex Steininger

The latest batch of pop-punk releases just doesn't have the punch or charisma that they used to have. What happened to classic pop-punk albums like NOFX's Drunk In Public, Hagfish's Rocks Your Lame Ass, anything the Fastbacks ever did, Nerf Herder's How To Meet Girls, or early Green Day? Let's not forget the true classics like The Ramones. I mean, this was the premium stuff when it came to pop-punk. And Good Riddance's The Phenomenon of Craving just doesn't come close to these! Matter of fact, it's so bland you'd think it was created so the 50+ crowd could digest the music. Forget it. Not for me. I'll give it a D.
