The Aquabats - Return of the Aquabats

While The Aquabats weren't as polished on their debut as they would be on subsequent albums, the cheekily-titled Return of the Aquabats is brimming with the trademark silliness and high energy that have given the band a hardcore cult following that will never die.

There are some definite trademark Aquabats tunes on this album, though many of them would be revisited on later albums. Some of the treats included are "Playdough," "Martian Girl," "Idiot Box" and several others. The Aquabats are basically the They Might Be Giants of ska, and this album shows that as well as any other.

Baleeted? Never.
