The Ataris - Blue Skies, Broken Hearts...Next 12 Exits

This is The Ataris at their very best. They are swinging for the fences on every single track, and send a surprising number of them over the wall. Did I mention that baseball season started this week? It did.

Anyway, this album is notable for the presence of the greatest Ataris song of all-time, which is also one of the greatest pop punk songs of all time. I am speaking, of course, of "San Dimas High School Football Rules." It's not the only gem on the album as "I Won't Spend Another Night Alone" is almost as good. If you like anthemic pop punk which doesn't take itself too seriously and revels in references to the 80's, this is the album for you.

Baleeted? Nope. We don't delete pop punk this good. We just don't.
