The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - The Magic Of Youth

Rating: 8

In order to achieve immortality within one’s chosen field, it is said that you must either be the first, or be the best. When it comes to ska punk and its harder-edged cousin, ska-core, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are both. Never given either the time of day? Well, ‘The Magic Of Youth’ might be just the album to win you around. Anchored by big, strident melodies and the incomparable storytelling of raspy-throated frontman Dicky Barrett, this is a classic Bosstones album; a record that rises above the notion of categorisation and which anyone with a pulse will find it impossible not to warm to. Put simply, this is the sound of pure class.

Pete Withers
