Pump Up the Valuumby NOFX
On PUMP UP THE VALUUM, NOFX abandon their ska bent and focus on what they do best -- poppin' pills and rocking out fast and furious. Perhaps the band got all of their self-indulgence out of their system with the epic 18-minute punk song "The Decline" (released in 1999 as a stand-alone single). Whatever the reason, PUMP UP THE VALUUM bursts at the seams with 14 high-impact songs that clock in at two to three minutes each. As speedy and voluble as songs such as "And Now for Something Completely Similar" and "What's the Matter with Parents Today" are, catchy vocal harmonies and a strong sense of melody prevent NOFX from sounding simply angry. In fact, the band exhibit more crass humor than ever on songs such as "My Vagina," which is about a transsexual coming to terms with his/her new "parts." And NOFX have never been as candid about their penchant for recreational pharmaceuticals as on "Herojuana" and "Pharmacist's Daughter" ("I'm in love with her, the pharmacist's daughter/She's got my love/I get her drugs"). PUMP UP THE VALUUM is an unapologetic call for partiers and punkers to unite and raise a little hell.
