Punk Goes Acoustic

( 3 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
As part of the long-running, gimmicky series from Fearless Records and BMG, Punk Goes Acoustic features a gaggle of youthful punk revivalists unplugging the patch chords and tuning up the acoustics. The bands aren't doing covers, which is a format change from the gimmickry of past titles like Punk Goes Metal or Punk Goes Pop. Instead, you get bands like Simple Plan, the Ataris, Further Seems Forever, Yellowcard, and Midtown running acoustically through their songs with passably entertaining results. The comp should be of interest to fans of these groups looking for something a bit different, but it's by no means a must-have.

    let's bring it down a notch...

    Wowsers!!! I thought I loved “Punk Goes Pop,” but this album is a million times better … maybe it’s because the bands aren’t covering bubblegum!!! My favorite tracks on albums have always been the acoustic and heart-driven ones so this compilation DEFINITELY rocks my world!!! I was especially excited to hear Yellowcard’s “Firewater” (since it’s not on any of their albums) and I’m a diehard YC fan!!! Thrice does an awesome job on “Trust” too. I definitely recommend this album to anyone who loves punk and acoustic sets!!!
