As quite a few people have mentioned them, I thought I would checkout The Aquabats. What is all the fuss about? The album I am listening to is quite frankly; terrible. I have read on RYM that is not one of their best (Charge). Anything out there to change my mind.

Charge is a fun album but not nearly as good as their first two; The Fury of the Aquabats and The Return of the Aquabats (especially since these are actually ska punk while Charge is more like surfer rock/pop punk with synths).

The Floating Eye and Myth, Legends... aren't so bad either but has too much filler.

I might check out the first two then if you think I might like it.

its pretty poppy and goofy but I personally love them. Give it a shot, nothing much to loose.

It's Reel Big Fish and I can't stand them. They are like a pop band with a bit of skankin thrown in. I have been listening to The Aggrolites recently. They are not bad at all.
