A Jackknife To A Swan
Label: SideOneDummy Records
The Bosstones' 2002 CD is a far cry from the party ska that made them famous, but for fans of the band's grittier, punk side, this album is the bee's knees. These are big, chunky pop songs with wailing guitars, plenty of horns and the obligatory mobster references. "Everybody's Better" slows things down to a familiar skank.
