You can get full nights of sleep now, eat like you used to, and be able to go out in public without people thinking you're crazy, cause it's finally here. It's the long awaited 3rd release from everyone's favorite Christian ska band. After touring with the likes of Audio Adrenaline and later, ska buddies The Insyderz and Five Iron Frenzy, The Supertones are striking back once again. The passion and bold, in-your-face lyrics return; however, this time they approach things a little differently.
Other highlights include "Grounded," a rocking ska-core track that will have the typical ska fan skankin' in seconds. But the best song on Chase the Sun follows. "Sure Shot" is a bold, bouncy, encouraging pop/ska tune that will have you singing along and fired up within it's three-minute length.
The only disappointment on the album lies in the track "Old Friend," which is an attempt at a ballad but is so separate from the Supertones sound that it doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the album, especially where it is placed (in between 2 of the best songs on the disc). But this minor flaw is made up by the other attempt at a ballad, "Refuge," which closes the CD out.
I have to praise the title cut of the album for it's over-all sound. The song starts off as pure hip-hop before mixing some classic Supertone ska into it for another one of their classic "band-based" songs like "Supertones Strike Back."
At first listen, one may not be impressed with what they hear, but after giving the disc a few further spins in their player, they may find the CD planted in their player for constant play.
