Reviewed by Amy Coonagh

Electric Boogaloo is Five Iron Frenzy's fourth full length studio album and presents the band with a distinctly new sound. The horns are still there, but the ska has toned down and what has developed is a sound which is both fresh and alive. The poppy-punk opening track "Pre-Ex Girlfriend" gets the album off to a good start, and along with "You Can't Handle This" provides the trademark humour of the band. What follows is a combination of songs brimful of challenging lyrical content. 'Electric Boogaloo' is full of diversity and the lyrical content. All in all, 'Electric Boogaloo' is full of diversity and the lyrical content and structure of the songs resemble Brave Saint Saturn (a FIF side project) with wandering verses and catchy choruses. This album is indeed a transitional one for this band, but boasts maturity and I believe they will succeed in this step forward.
