Survival Of The Fattest
"Survival Of The Fattest" CD (Fat Wreck Chords)
Considering most labels release compilations like this (namely, consisting of tracks from current and forthcoming releases with a handful of unreleased cuts and rare gems) and charge what amounts to an arm and a leg for crap, it's refreshing to see Fat charging a maximum of $4 for this disc. Yup, that's right, $4. It's true, quite a bit of these songs can be found on the respective album, but it's worth the $4 just for NOFX's "Vincent," which is, surprisingly, fast, speedy and melodic punk, varying quite a bit from the delicate acoustic songsmithing we've come to expect from Fat Mike and the lads.
