‘Came Out Swinging’ is perhaps the perfect opening to The Wonder Years‘ third full-length studio album. It details the trials and tribulations that Soupy and co. have had to endure since their inception back in 2005. Its bittersweet melody tells a sad tale of how the hardships of touring with a punk bad, but the uplifting verse towards the end, “I came out swinging from a South Philly basement” signals better things to come. Choosing to end the song with “I spent the Winter writing songs about getting better, and if I’m being honest I’m getting there” is a bold statement, and it follows on nicely from their sophomore record, ‘The Upsides’.

ALBUM: The Wonder Years – The Upsides

Release Date: September 21st, 2010
Label: Hopeless Records
Website: None available

Rating:

Pop-punk is a popular genre choice for a summer soundtrack, take a look at when America’s Warped Tour and the UK’s Slam Dunk festival take place and when a lot of the bands in the genre flourish and you’ll see for yourselves. Keeping the basic blueprint of the genre going, The Wonder Years don’t really break any boundries with second album ‘The Upsides’, but at least progress has been made since 2007’s debut ‘Get Stoked On It!’.

As said before, the default blueprint and design structure of any pop-punk record today has been followed accordingly with ‘The Upsides’; you’ve got your simple minimalistic chord variations, pop hooks on a distorted guitar background and the range of both positive and negative lyrics through upbeat affirmative tones.
