Obviously, NOFX are one of the standard-bearers of the West Coast skate-punk sound. Still, a band that sticks around as long as they have will eventually mature, no matter the genre, and THE WAR ON ERRORISM is where NOFX blossoms into adulthood. That's not to say they've lost their sense of humor, punk energy, or passion for embodying and detailing their milieu. It's just that they've expanded; you can hear it in the music, as a fuller, more pop-conscious production kicks in and everything from a horn section to a vibraphone makes an appearance. You can also hear it in the lyrics, which (in line with the Bush-bashing cover art) rise to the challenge of the post-9/11 world by adding a new degree of sociopolitical comment. Don't worry, skate kids, the band can still kick it.
