The Supertones' California roots (yes, it's that O.C.) are evident throughout Revenge, the group's seventh release. Opening with the high-octane "Wake Me Up On Time," Revenge packages upbeat spiritual lyrics with bouncing rhythms. The band's brand of ska is party-ready, full of sunny horns and beachy reggae rhythms. No down-in-the-mouth piety

Overview

The Supertones' California roots (yes, it's that O.C.) are evident throughout Revenge, the group's seventh release. Opening with the high-octane "Wake Me Up On Time," Revenge packages upbeat spiritual lyrics with bouncing rhythms. The band's brand of ska is party-ready, full of sunny horns and beachy reggae rhythms. No down-in-the-mouth piety here; the Supertones know the joy found in their faith, and they let it shine on cuts like "The Kingdom" and "Prince of Peace." Even when striking a serious note, as on "Dream of Two Cities," the Supertones' take on the Book of Revelation is more hopeful than fearful. Known as Christian music's most successful ska-punk-reggae outfit, the Supertones had steered their music in a more alternative-pop direction in recent years. With Revenge, we're happy to say the party is back.

Although I've only heard the first track (on the aforementioned group's website) it was sufficient enough to tell me that the Supertones are going back to their roots in Ska and Reggae. That and the messages they've sent out. Based on the past work of this band it's pretty easy to see that this will be an excellent album.
