Go Betty Go - Reboot

I got this CD/EP at the same time/show as Worst Enemy and it has the same lineup here. If I were to guess, I would say that this is the newer recording, both from the title and the sound, which is improved (nothing wrong with WE, but this just sounds huge and bright), along with the songs that, while still basic pop-punk, have some more interesting vocal harmonies and progressions.

But, overall, this is Go Betty Go doing their strong pop-punk, with some cool dynamics, time changes, and riffs backing up the catchy melodies. Some songs are a bit slower than one might expect - though far from dirge-y! - but still rockin' and memorable. I do find it interesting that they maintain their Chicana heritage by singing one song per record in Spanish.

More good stuff by GBG!
