Overview

The third compilation in a series by the folks at SideOneDummy Records and the Atticus clothing line -- owned by Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge of blink-182 fame -- is about as good as modern day, punk-tinged compilations get. Featuring a number of rarities along with previously released tracks by punk, emo and hardcore vets and newcomers alike, the disc's only real flaw is its lack of musical flow. When the biting catharsis of Motion City Soundtrack's "1000 Paper Cranes" slams into the lush, piano-fostered pop of MXPX's "Grey Skies Turn Blue" it just feels wrong -- no matter how great these songs are on their own. Nitpicking aside, the immediate, lovelorn "This Is the Part" by Gratitude packs a wallop, as does blink's blistering digital rarity, "Not Now." Surprisingly diverse, from Fall Out Boy's Dashboard Confessional-like confessional "Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy" to the Ben Folds-styled approach of Piebald's "Part of Your Body Is Made Out of Rock" to the new wave quirk of offerings by the Sounds and VCR, Atticus: Dragging the Lake, Vol. 3 is an outstanding sampler. And the best tune honors here go to Lucero's "Bike Riders," which incorporates pieces of the Pogues and Son Volt into a timeless working class punk anthem.
