Overview

The seventh installment in Epitaph Records' ongoing series of budget-priced punk samplers, Punk-o-Rama, Vol. 7 presents another 19 songs from as many bands, all offering their own variations on the state of the fast/loud thing. If you're looking for a dizzying variety of sounds and styles here, well, you're out of luck -- most of what's here is standard-issue new-school punk, heavy on the anthemic melodies married to lyrics which are either emphatic of funny depending on the artist, though pretty much every band on board is good at what they're doing. The relative veterans offer many of the most memorable moments, especially Rancid and NOFX covering one another and Bad Religion carrying the flag for smart, muscular punk, but the International Noise Conspiracy, Division of Laura Lee, and Beatsteaks (among others) make it clear Epitaph has plenty of interesting bands of more recent vintage to draw from as well. If it isn't brilliant from front to back, Punk-o-Rama, Vol. 7 is at least a strong and consistent sampler and offers plenty of bang for a six-buck list price. Value for money -- now that's punk rock.

This Cd is one of the best that I have ever found. It has a great variety of bands but all with basically the same cute punk sound. Not too hard and not too soft; just right. Perfect for doing homework to, listening to with friends, driving in the car with, or just falling asleep to every night. I loved hearing bands that I had never herd of before like hot water music. I even went out and baught the following full lenght cds after hearing them on this sampler: bouncing souls, millencolin, and pennywise. Great music, not one song you have to skip over because they are all good and unique in their own way.
