Internet Dating Super Studs
A less than interesting affair from old punks The Vandals, on which they tread dangerously close to becoming the bland pop-punk band they never were. I am, perhaps unfortunately, not above appreciating songs called “Disproportionate Head,” but Internet Dating Super Studs becomes too much of a novelty album, with little effort concentrated on making songs that actually survives the third and the fourth time listening. “Where’s Your Dignity” is one of the few tracks that stand out here and actually conjures up the image of former glories. Still, you don’t come here for profound meanings or political aggro-punk, and The Vandals do a fair enough job of imitating themselves. Although, as it goes, they used to be better at it.
