Man Overboard never really left the spotlight since releasing last year’s “Real Talk” with what seems like an incredibly large output in just a year. And they even found the time to write a brand new batch of songs! Normally when a band drops a self-titled album, it means something. Like, they’re going for a new sound, veering off in another direction. Here however it becomes obvious right from the start that they haven’t changed a thing. Which wasn’t exactly necessary either… they were already writing ridiculously catchy poppunk songs to begin with.
The dual vocals by Nik Bruzzese and Zac Eiesenstein are still very much in effect and backed up by nice chunky guitars and big drums. The hooks, melodies, singalong parts and so on are present and accounted for as well making this sophomoric album a must for all the fans of older Blink and New Found Glory.
