The Aquabats - Charge!!

Charge!! finds the Aquabats much more comfortable in their own skin. This is the most focused outing since the sophomore effort, The Fury of the Aquabats. The horn section is noticeably missing from the band's sound on this record and has been largely replaced by synthesizers, which is not as far as step down as it would seem.

The songwriting on this album is as strong and quirky as ever. Every single song title on the album is followed by an exclamation point, which is perfectly fitting. Every song is a quirky anthem and every note of the album is laser-focused on the Aquabats singular silly persona. Highly recommended are "Fashion Zombies!" and "Look at Me (I'm a Winner)!"

Baleeted? No, this is a winner.
