Bowling For Soup - A hangover you dont deserve

Reviewer :
Kaj Roth Format: Album
Year: 2004
Label: Jive Records
Genre: Pop Punk
Producer: Butch Walker/Jaret Reddick/Russ-T Cobb
Artist discography


I still wonder why Bowling for soup didn?t include the energetic track "Punkrock 101" on their 2004 album "A hangover you don?t deserve",you have to buy the DVD to get that track or if you?re lucky to find it on the net as a download.
There are 18 songs on this album including the bonus track "Somebody get my mom" that feels like a real filler I?m afraid.
This album was recorded in Atlanta, at Butch Walker?s place?He produced four songs, and left the band?s singer Reddick and his glorious engineer, Rusty Cobb, in charge of the rest!
This album is BFS?s happiest album ever and leans more towards pop territory than punkrock,you will find the 3 hit singles "Ohio","Almost" and "1985" (a song Reddick wrote with Mitch Allan of SR 71) on this Texas based 4th album.
It was really supposed to be about 1984. "That?s true," says Reddick. "But 1985 rhymes better with preoccupied.
If you want to be angry, this is not the album for you,If you want to smile and have a good time - this is your album.

great i loved it

I love this album - it´s extremely well-written and you never get tired of hearing Jaret´s voice. The track ´Punk Rock 101´ was on their previous album, ´Drunk Enough to Dance´ which is also an amazing album. Listening to Bowling For Soup always makes you feel happy. I would say this is well worth buying!
