Rock bands tend to be uniform and often harsh. FIF breaks this pattern with neat brassy feel. Their songs are very upbeat and make me smile just to listen. As is usually case for me (I have a tendency to discover new favorite bands AFTER they break up - think dc Talk and BarlowGirl), I came late to the party, but FIF's new album made me very excited that I didn't miss all of it. Definitely worth a listen.
This is everything I've been waiting for from Five Iron.
This will please the Rock N Roll fans and the old school Ska fans.
They didn't just come back and casually put out an album for the sake of the masses. It's actually some of the best written melody's and lyrics they have ever done. You can't hold a great band down!
