New Found Glory – Radiosurgery

- by Thomas

Radiosurgery is not only a type of surgery where radiation is used to treat brain tumors or epilepsy, it’s also the name of New Found Glory’s seventh album. Why you’d want to associate your album with a brain tumor is beyond me but hey, to each his own, right?

Working with producer Neal Avron for the first time since 2004’s “Catalyst” was good thinking on the band’s part because he knows how to make them sound poppy while maintaining an edge unlike anyone else. On songs like opener “Radiosurgery”, “Drill It In My Brain” (again with the brain surgery!) and “Map Of Your Body”, you’ll hear plenty of Green Day influences. “Memories And Battle Scars” however showcase the band’s fiercer side and along with the gang vocals and breakdowns strewn throughout the album, New Found Glory prove the punk in pop-punk is still there for a reason.

Basically, this is a fairly standard New Found Glory album without any surprises or it would have to Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino joing forces with Jordan Pundik on “Caught In The Act”. Despite this album being standard, it’s still a good place to start if you’re looking for some decent pop-punk tuneage.
Score: 7 out of 10
