We Recommend - Five Iron Frenzy 2, "Electric Boogaloo"

Five Iron Frenzy's DVD came out recently, and so I've been in a big FIF state of mind. I watched it and saw that the general consensus amongst the bandmembers, in regards to their personal favorite FIF album, was Five Iron Frenzy 2: Electric Boogaloo.  So I listened to it the next day.  No wonder it's their favorite.  It's gold.  I'm not in love with "The Day We Killed," but the rest is great.  "Plan B" makes a satirical point about mediocrity in life while being the only true ska song on the album.  "Far Far Away" and "Farsighted" are beautiful rock-with-horns tracks that speak of more spiritual matters.  There's also the anti-capitalism gem "Vultures," the mournful-yet-worshipful "Car," and the nerd anthem "You Can't Handle This."  Electric Boogaloo is a bit of a different side of Five Iron, but a great example of why they're one of the greatest bands ever, no matter how far under the radar they flew. ~ Scott Fryberger
