Goldfinger is basically a ska-punk band, but it's not afraid to just be a punk band, either; in fact, it can sound disarmingly like both Husker Du (squalls of Bob Mould-ish feedback) and Green Day (engagingly melodic). It's not afraid of heavy metal either, as witness the ferocious riffing on "Bro," or lead singer/writer John Feldman's declaration in "The End of the Day" (a rant against an obnoxious speedfreak scenester) that "if I want to play metal that's all right with me."
Feldman's lyrical persona throughout the album is that of somebody continually ticked off by the people around him. Incidentally, that small sub-species of humanity who clamored for a revival of the music of '80s New Wavers Nena will be pleased to learn that there is a respectful, if oddly Zepplin-esque remake here of that band's international hit "99 Red Ballons," including a verse or two auf Deutsch.
