Reel Big Fish - Why Do They Rock So Hard?
Mojo Records

The answer to the album's title first: they don't really rock very hard at all. Even the staunchest
haters of ska must admit that they liked the horn section on Reel Big Fish's major hit, Sell Out.
If they don't admit that then they are a liar. Look, I admit it, I LIKED THAT SONG. The rest of
Reel Big Fish's CD sucked ass, but we won't go into that here. This CD is much more cohesive and
although it's nothing spectacular, the kid will buy this I imagine and go crazy and skank and
stuff. It's certainly better than their last CD, but nothing to get too excited about.
