Reel Big Fish

Cheer Up!

Jive 41811

Released on June 25, 2002

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Formed in Southern California in the early '90s, Reel Big Fish has slowly gathered a massive following by virtue of a combination of relentless touring and relentlessly peppy albums, following in the wake of such erstwhile ska/punk bands as No Doubt. While Reel Big Fish lack a front person with the obvious charms of Gwen Stefani, they plough an irresistible Bare Naked Ladies-type furrow with energetic frat-boy anthems such as "Ban the Tube Top" ("beautiful girl, ugly shirt--you are a fashion red alert") and the ska/R&B flavored "Suckers." There's no denying the attraction of sardonic lyrics set to upbeat rhythms, a formula the Fish stick to throughout CHEER UP! that hits home time and again, in songs such as "What Are Friends For," and "Dateless Losers," a self-explanatory frenetic excursion through many solitary Friday nights--("we're not so bad you know, but you won't give us a chance," they whine) that should find an echo in the hearts of dateless Reel Big Fish fans everywhere. With its refusal to take itself too seriously and its irrepressibly smart pop hooks, CHEER UP! is a joyous soundtrack to an endless summer.

This Reel Big Fish album is okay. There is definitely better stuff on this website. If your looking for ska, get Let's Go Bowling or Skankin' Pickle, not Reel big fish. I don't really like the vocals or their attitude, get something else.

Tis CD rules. a lot of people didn't like it because it doesnt sound like W.D.T.R.S.H? or T.T.R.O., but that is just because RBF has gone through member changes, and graduated to a point where they can do rap songs, mexican/spanish style songs,rock and roll songs, and voice-only tracks and make them sound awesome. Pick it up, but im not garunteeing you like it if you are obsessed with the happy poppy songs of turn the radio off.

mmmm....not what I was expecting at all. I have always been a big fan of RBF and have all of their previous albums, however was disapointed with this release. 'Where Have You Been' is the best track, and basically the only 'ska punk' track. The rest of the album is your average slowish, bit boring ska. They are now doing a song on the Wild Thornberrys movie - 'monkey boy' What are you doing guys??!

Ok, this album is a bit different than their previous stuff. It has a more rock sound to it, rather than ska. But surprisingly it's really good. They definetly have a more mature sound, but still some how their ska/punk roots shine through. This is one hell of an album. The song "Where have you been?" is the best song on the CD. A Reel Big Fish fan will love this album. If you are more of just a ska/punk fan, you may still enjoy this, but it might not be exactly what you like. Overall the album is solid and I am glad I bought it.
