Handbook For The Sellout is a really good song, it’s a great mix of comedy and fun ska. Where Is Micah? has probably the coolest horn riff on the album, and the percussion is fun. Superpowers is just a really solid song, with a cool chorus. Fistful Of Sand has some neat moments in it. Suckerpunch is fairly neat, especially the chorus. Kitty Doggy is a stupid little song.

Blue Comb ’78 is kind of cool, I like the idea behind it. Banner Year is honestly not all that interesting. Second Season is pretty much just ‘okay’, it’s not a bad song but nothing special either. Litmus fares much the same. Oh, Canada is somewhat fun. Most Likely To Succeed has some cool vocal moments.

Every New Day is a pretty good song despite the lyrics. Kingdom Of The Dinosaurs is a bonus track that plays after a few minutes of silence. It’s not very interesting. Overall this album has some fun songs on it, but it’s not one of my favorites to listen through.

Final Rating: 7/10
