Bouncing Souls

Gold Record

Epitaph 868082

Released on June 6, 2006


$12.75

The Bouncing Souls have been kicking their singular brand of punk anthems for upwards of fifteen years, their live shows becoming the stuff of legend as they’ve shared the stage with everyone from Against Me to Alkaline Trio to The Casualties. So to find that after so long on the road and six studio albums to their credit, Bouncing Souls have made the record of their career, is a welcome surprise. Producer Ted Hutt (Flogging Molly) has brought out the huge, anthemic side of the band’s songwriting, a committed storytelling as much in the tradition of the Who, Springsteen and Petty as the Clash. Their songs tell the stories of loves won and lost, friends here and gone, homes squatted and deserted; as The Gold Record unfolds, song after song builds into a punk classic, leaving no doubt that no other current, continual band has had such a lasting impact on the punk landscape.

I’ve been a Souls fan for a long ass time now, and I am one to appreciate all their hooks and anthemic melodies. I thought that they were a band that continues to grow and expand their sound, and I always looked forward to what was coming out next from them. That being said, The Gold Record is a pretty mediocre album. Nothing here catches my attention or makes me want to hear more, and the classic feel that the Bouncing Souls bring to the table feel oddly muted with this album. If you want decent enough background music, go ahead and pick this up, but for me, I have to say no to the Gold Record, I’d rather sit around listening to one of their old records.

I'm giving this a 1 cause everyone gave it a 5, well me cousin bought it for his enjoyment and I gave him my blessing, douchebag... ahem... anyways, listen girls and dumbasses alike, hush Mic is pontificating. Listen I say hark! There is something that I just never got about Bouncing Souls, everyone is on their nuts like it's going out of style. I know they might be cool down to Earth guys who enjoy to drink in excess and play soccer, sew ha-what I say! Shhh... you fucking pubians I say whoa, touchth of mine pubis, purr child. Ahem, good lord I'm off track. This is an enjoyable album I guess, could never dig I mean I just don't know it doesn't speak to me. I guess I need to start drinking and snatch chasing like the rest of the young men of this country. I should have never gone on the wagon... Don't take the 1 as a fuck you my friend, I just want to do something diffrent than the rest of the gentry. Anybody watch that fucking Doherty video, good god! What a bunch of shit I say! This is better my friends.

Bouncing Souls somehow always manage to kick ass. Not as good as How I spent my summer vacation or previous releases but a sure must have. Lean on Sheena is a good song. Sounds of the city is one of the best songs on this cd as well. Pick it up but let me warn newbies, do not buy this! Start off with Hopeless Romantic or Argyle.

I was a bit skeptical when I first put this in, it sounded too produced too me. After I listened to it a few more times I realized it's still the Bouncing Souls. I have to admit I am a little dissapointed with it being too produced but it's a good record.

I have been a fan of the Bouncing Souls for quite some time now and I must say that this album has a different sound than their older material. It is softer and more mature sounding than their older stuff. While the songs aren't as fast-paced and lighthearted as past material, there is definitely something about that is very enjoyable. The signature cheesy punk songs are still there (see "The Pizza Song", "Sarah Saturday", "Better Things") but there are others that go above and beyond what is expected from this band (see "Letters From Iraq", "Midnight Mile", "So Jersey", "Sounds Of The City", "For All The Unheard"). I love the Souls and I think as far as they go, this album definitiely deserves five stars. The reason I give it a four is that I have started to grow out of a lot of the free-spirited cheese-punk a bit and some of it shows on this album. For others, this will be the selling point because those songs are classic Souls. But where this album really packs its punch is in the new sound and maturity. I really enjoy it.

Words cannot even describe this record.

It's just simply amazing. Hands down my favorite Souls record, and that's saying something.

You know how some albums have really great music, or really great lyrics, but not always both? The music on this album just accentuates the meaning of the words and makes it a hundred times better. The lyrics go straight to the heart. You can just feel these songs pump through your blood when you listen to them. I think this record is the essence of the Bouncing Souls and everything they've worked so hard to create.

The gold record is much of what I had expected from the Bouncing Souls. Overall it is a little bit slower, and more well thought out album than most of their previous records; it is a step forward from thier last album 'Anchors Aweigh'.

It's not the kind album that you would want to put in to pump you up and smash things around, like occaisionally every needs to do. It's more of a relaxing and fun album. The Bouncing Souls have always had 'fun' music, but as the band has matured they have moved from the simple fast fun, to a more sophisticated style of poppy sing alongs. They get your toes tapping along with these anthems; take songs like Sarah Saturday, and Lean on Sheena for example. There are quite a few songs with 2 guitars and even a few little guitar solos, which I found quite suprising, seeming that the Souls only have one guitarist.

Overall this record this quite well done, and is great for any fan of the Souls, or anyone into catchy sing alongs. But if you are somehow new to the Bouncing Souls then I would suggest checking out 'How I spent my summer vacation' before getting this one.

Each time I listen to the Gold Record it seems to grow on me. My favorite songs are: The Gold Song, The Pizza Song, Sarah Saturday, Lean on Sheena, and The New Thing.

The Souls have done it again. If you enjoyed some of the mellower songs on "Anchors Aweigh" then you'll enjoy this whole CD. It isn't the fast paced stuff of "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" but it is definately a Soul's album. Lean on Sheena and Another Letter From Iraq are the best two on the CD, if you enjoy the Souls then you'll enjoy this CD.

First listen thought it was very good, not as immediate as '...Summer Vacation' but more fulfilling than 'Hopeless Romantic' and 'Bouncing Souls' and their earlier records. Then I listened to it again...and again...and again. This is a real grower of an album. I went from thinking it was very good to absolutley loving it. First time 'Souls buyers will be best going for '...Summer Vacation' and then this, probably 'Achors Aweigh' after that. Awesome Band. Excellent record. (Oh, buy the 'Do You Remember' DVD too, it's class)

This CD is awesome. I would say the album of 2006 so far. A bit more mellow than their previous cd's, but just because its mellower, doesn't mean it lacks energy. Whether or not you love the souls or heard only a couple songs, pick up this cd. You won't be disappointed!
