We Recommend - Five Iron Frenzy, 'All The Hype...'

I hated this CD the first time I heard it.  I became a Christian in late 2000, and for Christmas that year, a family in my church that knew of my recent conversion got me a Christian music sampler called Simply Impossible, containing bands like Philmore, The Normals, The Elms and Five Iron Frenzy's song "Solidarity".  An odd choice from the album, because being new to Christian music, I initially thought FIF might have been a salsa band.  A friend of mine let me borrow All The Hype..., and I learned they were ska.  I loved ska, but I hated that CD for some reason.  After some time (and a few more listens to it on a road trip one night), I discoverd the brilliance of Five Iron Frenzy.  Almost every song on All The Hype... is a gem.  From the worshipful skacore jam "World Without End" to the anti-hatred anthem "Fahrenheit," there's not much to not like here.  The band may have passed on, but the music is still golden.  If you haven't checked this one out, it's not too late.  Just look on eBay or Amazon.  Even iTunes has it now.  And while you're there, it wouldn't hurt to buy all their other albums too, you know. - Scott F.
