      great instruments but let down by vocals

      S&M airlines is the second album released by the punk band nofx. Their first album was one that I really disliked and that was because they first started out as a harder punk band, and this album is similar to that as well, you can tell they had calmed down their style a bit but its just still too hard and too loud and rushed, and it wasn't till their third album for me that they really became a great punk band, however saying that, this album does have some good points as well.

      One of those good points come in the form of the first song, titled day to daze, it has a really great opening with some very well written instrument parts and the lyrics and singing is very good as well, its not a too hard song however his singing could be improved if he isn't trying to shout most of it out I think.

      Mean people suck has a nice low sounding bass opening with a cool high pitched guitar note over that, it's another good beginning to the song and then it has a really good guitar solo section as well but its when the singing comes in that the song kind of gets ruined, the lyrics to this one arnt particularly all that great and its shouted rather than singing and yet again this ruins the song.

      Life O'Riley is one that I actually quite like, it's a kind of a ska up note song with a low bass line going on all the way through, it probably shouldn't work but it fits quite well, the only thing I don't like the chorus which is a bit hard and doesn't fit with the rest of the song and so kind of ruins it.

      1. Day to Daze
      2. Five Feet Under
      3. Professional Crastination
      4. Mean People Suck
      5. Vanilla Sex
      6. S & M Airlines
      7. Drug Free America
      8. Life O'Riley
      9. You Drink You Drive You Spill
      10. Scream For Change
      11. Jaundiced Eye
      12. Go Your Own Way

      This album wasn't too bad, the instrument parts are particularly excellent however the lyrics and the vocals aren't great and so this lets all the songs down.

      After saying NOFX are great - This album is not a very good one. NOFX have a few songs which are OK but none which are very good (apart from maybe ?You can go your own way?). Fat Mikes singing needs more fine-tuning than it usually does with this album but it is a considerable improvement over the bands last effort with Liberal Animation (although it was released later, it was recorded earlier). The song ?professional crastination? sums up the bands lazy attitude. The album is very heavy and not the best. I NOFX fan will be happy to stick this in alongside Ribbed and it will not sound too far out of place. . Listening to the band in this early stage it still has the classics of a good punk album and the song S&M airlines shows the promise the band later showed and the song would not seem to out of place in some latter albums. And where in this section is White Trash Two Heebs and a Bean?
