Title - ‘F.U.’ EP (Arista)
Artist - Gob
With their third released disc these Canadian punk rockers have captured the essence of acts such as Green Day and Sum 41. Unlike most of the present day pop punk bands whose songs run together, each song off the FU E.P. has been highly individualized, and the combined vocal styling of Tom and Theo, round out each song as its own. From the lead off track "Ming Tran" to the closer "Soda" this is an all around solid album from an almost unknown band, and they just may break before this wave of pop punk passes us by. This CD is well worth the money, selling for [a moderate price] and containing a few extra incentives to buy (some live footage, etc.). Even if punk isn't your thing, give Gob a chance; they may give your perception a shot in the arm.
