Ska in the 90's was awesome. Not the cool traditional or "skinhead" shit, but the really awesome stuff on the radio. Yeah, I'm serious. Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger, Buck-O-Nine etc. There was also Save Ferris who had that cover of Dexy's Midnight Runner's "Come On Eileen" that got some air play. I remember my little sister having that CD and though I didn't feel it was cool enough to buy for myself, I admittedly listened to it more than a few times. They had a song about Spam! Oh ska, you were so silly back then. Anyway, I grew up and moved on. I thought Save Ferris did too, but here they are in 2017 with a new record.

"Anything" kicks off the record and takes me back to that same old upbeat poppy radio ska that died when I traded it in for nu-metal, but I hear this and think I might have made a mistake. Somehow I made it through the 90's and early 2000's without owning a pair of JNCO's or a fedora and that's pretty amazing. I don't remember this woman's name, but she can still sing very well and this shit is super catchy. However, the second is that awful dub shit where everyone pretends to be Jamaican. I hate this shit. I want ska to be fun, not contemplative and brooding.

Skanking resumes for the next two songs and I'm left to reminisce of summers watching the X-Games and wondering what smoking wheat would be like. That's weed by the way, when I was like eleven I thought it was called wheat.

The EP closes with a song that could be on the Dixie Chicks last record if there weren't horns in it. Skip it.

Three out of five are bangers though. I'm pleasantly surprised.
