Post a Comment. Tuesday, November 22, The Bomb - Challenger. Rating : 4. The Bomb are lead by Jeff Pezzati of Naked Raygun fame on vocals, so you get all of the "whoa oh"s you can handle. Challenger is an eight song EP they recently recorded. It features four new songs and four re-recorded songs from previous albums. The EP is available on 11" split color vinyl mine is red and clear from No Idea Records with download code and also from iTunes.
I like vinyl and I like download codes, so two wins there. There are only copies available and I've got one! First, the new songs. The production is not as polished as their previous releases, it feels closer to them playing live. That's not a bad thing, in my opinion.
The songs are all good and keep with the sound and style of the last The Kids - The Bomb - The Challenger Bomb albums Indecision and Speed Is Everything. Atlanta" is a good song, but is a little too straight ahead for me, probably my least favorite on the EP. Although I like Vic's vocal style, I don't think it added The Kids - The Bomb - The Challenger . The re-recorded songs span all of the Bomb's previous albums.
They are given a "live in the studio" treatment. Happily for me anywaythey picked some of my favorite songs to redo. There is not much deviance from the previous versions except that the vocals and whoa ohs are less polished. The songs fit pretty well with the new material. No Other Name - Peter, Paul And Mary* - Album 1700 : Must have for any fan of the Bomb.
If I could only have one Bomb release, I would pick either Indecision or Speed is Everything can't decidebut this release will definitely get lot's of play. If you have not heard the Bomb, this would be a pretty good introduction. Atlanta 2. Hey World 3. Head Down 4. The Challenger 5. The Kids 6. Indecision 7. Can Jeannie Come Out Tonight 8.
