Come Home Smelly
I think this is a short CD for people with short attention spans. Clocking in at a grand total of 17:05, F.Y.P. packs in eight tracks of loud, fast, and bratty punk rock. The album starts out with warm sounding guitar with a light feel, and that changes pretty quick. F.Y.P. is in your face the whole time, with lyrics about everything from Chia pets to God to pink slips. The transitions in the songs are good. Their sound ranges from happy and poppy to loud and pounding and back down again with no trouble. All the songs are entertaining (and mostly under two minutes!) but I especially liked the high-pitched harmonic guitars in “Pink Slipped.” I’m surprised I haven’t heard of F.Y.P. sooner.
