VARIOUS ARTISTS: Don't Be Scared
It's Only A Fearless Records Sampler (Fearless Records)

By: Alex Steininger

From one of Southern California's most-loved pop-punk labels, Fearless Records, comes a label sampler including past and present bands: At the Drive-In, The Aquabats, 30FootFall, and Bigwig.

From hardcore to pop-ska to pop-punk, the label covers it all. Two tracks from Bigwig's upcoming album, Invitation To Tragedy, delivers sonic pop-punk with plenty of muscle. The Aquabats take a stab at hardcore on "I Fell Asleep On My Arm," then deliver the ultimate pop-ska anthem, "Martian Girl."

Other notable tracks include all three by Dynamite Boy, At the Drive-In's stellar contributions ("Proxima Centauri", "Chanbara", and "Doorman's Placebo"), and 30FootFall's loud party-pop-punk.

A stellar sampler from a stand up label, Fearless Records hits it dead on. I'll give this a B.15
