My mind is wide asleep My conscience keep awake The promises I deep Are not the ones I make I count the costant causes I lost count of regrets A surplus of good intentions don't Provide me with content All I want is just a little content. I choose the beaten path
Longtime fans of independent punk giants NOFX will be happy that for Pump Up the Valuum the band changed absolutely nothing about their sound. All the songs follow the group's now standard three-chord punk style with witty songs that rip on the world around them. The most notable tracks are those that take aim at the music business
Most everyone I have spoken to about music, regardless of genre or tastes can agree on one simple thing: most everyone has a band that has either shaped their music tastes to this day, or whose works have just infested their music collection like mold. Pump up the Valuum runs on two modes for the majority of the album. Firstly, the aforementioned hyperactive punk that the band practically wrote the book on is here in copious amounts, especially on tracks such as the catchy romp of Thank God it’s Monday, the depression-addled tale of Total Bummer, and the pro-drug legalization anthem of Herojuana all speed along fast enough to make all of their imitators wince in envy and lend.
