Cabana 1 Records brings us the compilation release ‘Where The Fun Never Sets 3′. As you may have guessed this is the third in the ‘Where The Fun Never Sets’ series. All songs are Previously Unreleased and Exclusive to this compilation, so if you see a band listed here don’t wait around to get this, because chances are you’ve never heard it before! And even if you don’t see anyone you know it’ll do you some good to pick this up, because comps are always fun and this one is pretty good. You get twenty seven songs, which means twenty seven songs featured on here all coming in at just under the hour long mark. If you can’t find something you like in twenty seven songs here you might want to move on to a different style of music. Not every song on here is great but there’s enough quality stuff to make it worth having around. So fear not punk rockers and buy away! Highlights on this include songs from The Sheckies, Murderburgers, Los Kamikaze, The Zits, The Meeps!, Parasite Diet, Rocket Jocks, Colin Farrell, and Sizemores.
‘Don’t Go’ A big reason I was excited for this comp was that it had a J Prozac song. This is not even close to what I expected, being from the Prozacs I expected a pop punk song. Instead we get an acoustic song, it took a little mood adjusting to get into but it’s a good, a little haunting, I’d buy a whole album of stuff like this.
‘Sweet Baby’ A decent song from Promdates, but it’s lacking some energy.
‘Then She Got Married’ The Sheckies pick up the energy level with their song. It’s a catchy fast pop punk song that’s sure to get stuck in your head.
‘Quarter To Three’ Hairlips are in for a fast punk rock song, I don’t care for this one a whole lot. It could be some background party music and work though.
‘Drifting Apart’ More fast catchy pop punk here from the Murderburgers. They slightly suffer from the generic bug but it’s a good song.
‘Miss You’ The Biffers from Italy are in for the next song, it’s a good song for the middle, catchy though somewhat repetitive.
‘Waiting (You+Me)’ Spider Lane brings a song that fans of rock punk might be into but I wasn’t really feeling this one.
‘Upside Down’ I’ve always been on the fence about Joe Jitsu, but this is a really good song from the pop punkers.
‘Llora Sin Saber’ Los Kamikaze here with one of the best songs on the comp. It’s fast, catchy, everything that’s great about pop punk songs.
‘Love Me The Way I Am’ Photogenics bring a fast punk song, it’s not bad but it doesn’t really jump out at you either.
‘Don’t Say No’ Kobanes are a band that has a decent following, but also their fair share of anti-fans. But I don’t really care about any of that; I’m just here for the song, here they give us a slow pop punk song. It’s not bad but seems low on energy and inspiration.
‘Jenny’s Not A Punk’ The Zits come in, and leave, fast with this one. It’s under a minute long and is an acoustic pop punk song that’s great. Jenny hates punk and here’s why, Jenny sounds like a drag. One of my favorite songs on here.
‘Chasing The Dragon’ An instrumental track, decent but I don’t think instrumentals work in a comp situation.
‘Beach Party’ The Mcflys are in with a good pop punk song about, you guessed it, a beach party!
‘Golden Coast’ The Visitors are in with a pretty cool song. It’s alright on the comp but I think it’d fit in a lot better with a whole album around it.
‘Lost Weekend’ I’m not a big fan of this Riccobellis song, the singer sounds like he’s half asleep. The band is pretty tight though.
‘Camaro’ A kick ass little pop punk jam from The Meeps! here, another one of the best songs on this whole thing. Pop songs about cars and girls never go wrong.
‘Mosquito’ Parasite Diet has been putting out some great tunes and this song just continues that trend of solid pop punk songs from the group.
‘Night Of The Bee Girls’ Fans of things like the White Wires and Mean Jeans should be into this Rocket Jocks song, it’s a catchy rock tune that’s pretty damn great.
‘Yankee Fuckin’ Blue Jeans’ A pretty decent punk songs from The Hung Ups here. It’s a standard affair but done well so it’s not something to be ignored.
‘FBI’ Colin Farrell is in with a fast punk rock song that’s another one of the best songs on this thing. These guys never fail to bring the good stuff. This might actually be one of their best songs.
‘Creepy Beauty’ Oddly named the Evil O’Brians are up for the next track it’s kind of in the same vein of the Hung Ups song in that it’s your standard type of catchy punk song but done well.
‘Chicks In Rehab’ Sizemores here with a fucking great song, about, as the name says Chicks in Rehab. It’s a pretty great snotty punk song.
‘You’Re Gonna Mutate’ Panic Beats have a song that I can see a lot of people liking but it’s just not for me. Kind of a Ramones style of punk, but the vocals just totally take me out of the song.
‘Say Goodbye’ Sprains do a great punk song that reminds me of something like Face to Face.
‘All The Same To Me’ The Annoyers have a style of punk that fourteen year old me would probably be into, but old lame me can’t get into it.
‘Get You’ Slartybarfast close out our compilation album in an underwhelming fashion. A quick rock song, that almost sounds like it wants to be a rockabilly song.
