"My Republic" (Fat Wreck; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS


California punk rock vets Good Riddance stay the course on "My Republic," as the PETA-loving quartet keep the beats swift and the attitude angst-ridden across their latest 14-track excursion. 

Songs like "Regret" and "Save the Children" have a whole lotta punk rock riffs thrown about, all of which are capable of rocking the Warped Tour set, but sometimes the band exudes an atmosphere like they're running in place by playing it safe. 

Taking up the Fenix TX and Blink 182 slack with a bit more muscle and a helluva lot more to say, Good Riddance's new disc doesn't break new ground but does thought-provokingly rock your inner punk child.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
