Engine Of A Million Plots (Dept. of Biophysics)

FOR FANS OF: The O.C. Supertones, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish
Rating: 4 Stars
After breaking up at the peak of success in 2003, Five Iron Frenzy spent most of the ensuing decade in silence, but after reuniting for select shows over the past few years, finally found the inspiration to record a full-length album. The results find the horn-heavy troupe recharged and raring to rock, reclaiming its witty songwriting muse and proving there’s still a place for these ska scene shapers a generation down the line.
