Bomb the Music Industry!- Scrambles

Bomb the Music Industry's fourth and a half album (To Leave Or Die In Long Island doesn't really count as a whole one) everything a BtMI fan, ska fan, or even a fan of great music could hope for just short of a Jawbreaker reunion (one can dream). The band stuck to the full band sound of Get Warmer though there is a little laptop drum machine in there for the old school fans ("25!"). There are still plenty of synths too but also the album has quite a bit of keyboard as well ("Fresh Attitude, Young Body", "25!"). This album is just really fun, from "It Shits!!!" to "(Shut) Up the Punx" to "Can I Pay My Rent In Fun?". I know that this is free on their website but I thought I'd give you my take on it and encourage you to buy it on vinyl (I'll let you know when it's available) or donate to the label.
