Reel Big Fish was initially introduced to me the day after I had reached second base for the first time. My recent exploration of the finer sex had rocketed my head into the upper stratospheres of excitement and wonder, so the carefree up-stroked guitars and brass-fueled melodies of 1996's Turn the Radio Off were the perfect soundtrack for my present state of being. In the subsequent year or two to follow, I saw Reel Big Fish many times, and enjoyed all the other bands that made up the mid-'90s ska/punk swell. So, as I sit here listening to Bathory's Blood Fire Death, I contemplate how my tastes have shifted from light-hearted, skankable anthems of fun to spells of unholy darkness and aggressive speed. However the evolution came to be, I am glad to see that RBF is still around sharing their exuberance with new generations. I just don't want to have anything to do with it. ARIS WALES
