Big School "Don't Cry I'll Be Right Back" LPChrome Audio
The third full-length album from Welland's BIG SCHOOL. Embracing the saccharine side of punk-sensible rock 'n roll, Big School wraps up 10 songs in a neat 28-minute package that still feels like it's over too soon. Taking as many cues from Guided By Voices as they do from the Buzzcocks, the infectious and high energy melodies of " Don't Cry, I'll Be Right Back" will be ringing in your head before you can flip this record back to side A from side B, then back again. And boy, this band seems incapable of writing a song that doesn’t provide an instant sugar rush.
Compared to their previous output, Big School sound bigger and more polished than before, almost like they don’t care anymore if they are considered as a power pop, a pop punk, an alt pop, a garage or an arena rock band. Put Big School in a small local venue or in a hockey arena, and they will fill the room and reach the back of the room no matter what.
Don’t Cry I’ll Be Right Back is a sticky sweet confectionary masquerading as power pop punk. Think of it as Def Leppard, The Lemonheads, Jacuzzi Boys and All-American Rejects in one convenient bubblegum wrapped package.
