This is one my most anticipated records of the year. One side from Dan Vapid and the Cheats, one side from the Jetty Boys. Before I even heard it I was sure that this was going to be a great split. Sometimes things happen when you know there’s no way you can be wrong, this was one of those times, not only is this a great record, it even far exceeded my expectations. The first two tracks are from Dan Vapid and the Cheats, oddly enough for various reasons this is the first time I’ve even heard this band, but I’m a fan of Danny Vapid in general. Both these songs are awesome and I’ll be on the lookout for more from this band for sure. They come here with two great pop punk songs that should make any pop punk fan happy. I really can’t make the call for which song I like better, they’re both equally great. On the other side we have two songs from the Jetty Boys, if you know current pop punk then you should know the Jetty Boys, they always put out great songs and this continues that tradition. While I’m still waiting for the band to bring us a third album, I’ll take anything I can get and these two songs definitely quench that thirst. I think their first song is just a slight big better than the second, but be assured it’s a very close call. For the first time in a while I’m going to say I’m not sure which side of this split I like better. Both bands play their hearts out and bring us four top quality pop punk songs of equal greatness. If you’re a pop punk fan this is a must own record for you. You can get it right now from Merman Records, so don’t wait!
