- Label: Ptrash
- Catalog Number: Full Trash 101
- Availability: In Stock
Lars has returned with the sound he's always played. It's a full understanding that stays true to what Pop Punk was at it's inception. These songs are true to Lars' life with no false pretense or gimmick, but far from boring due to his great ability to communicate the emotion in each one as they were when I first heard NEON BONE, but now even more so defined.
Things open on a faster and more aggressive note with "Number On Your List", easily demonstrating the unique and gravelly vocal tone that makes Lars memorable. Also there is a new element present that hasn't been used in the previous releases. Keyboards that are well implemented and cohesive but not overdone. There's also a great video for this song that really gives you a look at the one man approach that is NEON BONE. This record stays within a mostly hopeless romantic approach that I really connect to in preference and he's quite masterful at, with songs such as the slower, ballad-esque "No Good" and the 60's pop influenced "Looking For Love" being a couple of my favorites, but that's not all this record has to offer.
Lars does break away and show his skill to write outside of the subject in first hearing "Laika", where I almost immediately thought to myself, "I know who this is for!". I had recently watched a TV program about two Italian brothers famous for studying radio waves, that had actually picked up the heartbeat of one of the first living creatures sent to space by Russia, a dog named Laika. This is a lovely tribute to her.
Another notable choice is the closing track, which is a cover of DEPECHE MODE's "But Not Tonight". This was very welcome to me, being outside of the 20 something crowd and having a great love for New Wave! Make no mistake though, this is a wonderfully translated to Pop Punk cover and fits just as well as any of the other songs!
This record is aptly named because I have many good things to say about Lars and NEON BONE however, I will now let you go discover how great this record is for yourself.
This certainly is a great way to kick off the year for classic SCREECHING WEASEL, RAMONES, M.O.T.O. - Pop Punk!
