  • Dynamite Boy
  • Despite being a fan of this band for many years, I have never owned a single Dynamite Boy album until now. I first saw this band in 1996 at the Punk Rock Pajama Party and have been in love ever since.

    This band is a pop punk band of the same breed as Green Day, but lead guitarist, Sean Dynamite, adds an extra punch with his incredible leads. The band has a strong core now and has been earning it's stripes by touring constantly and playing amazing shows. This CD captures their charm perfectly and the songs on the album are as intricate as they are fun.

    The album opens with "Catching On." The lead to open this song is great. This is just one of the many catchy riffs laid down on this album. Sean's vocals are very agreeable to the average listener and the lyrics are fun. The songs are all something you can relate to.

    "av99" has a great acoustic opening that showcases the vocal abilities of Sean. The album them comes full speed at you. It's a great transition that keeps you on your toes.

    I was really excited to see that "Strive" was on this album. It's one of my all-time favorite Dynamite Boy songs. The only down part was that it used to be sung by ex-guitarist, Andrew. Despite missing his contributions, the song was played well.

    The bass on this album was strong as well. El Nino plays some mean lines and keeps the structure with Scott and Danny who fill out the rest of the rhythm section.

    This album is available everywhere albums are available, as well as from Fearless Records. I definitely think you should check this one out. The hooks pull you back, the leads are tight, and the rhythm is tight. This is a great album from start to finish.
