The first proper LP from NOFX on Fat Wreck Chords, The War On Errorism, is without any doubt the best stuff NOFX released since Punk In Drublic. As a fan of White Trash, Two Heebs And A Bean ( I still consider that album the best NOFX ever released ), I can say that The War On Errorism reminds me of that record. After the not so good So Long... and Pump Up The Valuum, which sounded kind of weak, The War On Errorism is what will make happy a lot of older NOFX fans like me. The record is made of 14 of the best song the band ever wrote, not just musically, but even lyrically, especially lyrically.

The songs are quite political, against the actual U.S. governement, not to mention, the introduction give by Fat Mike in the booklet says it all about NOFX political and social points of view. Musically, as said, the record reminds me of the first NOFX stuff: The Separation Of Church And Skate reminds me of The Death Of Jonh Smith, and in general the feeling I got was quite unique, as this record is really well done, and you can see the effot. Songs like Franco Un-American, American Errorist ( I Hate Hate Haters) really put NOFX on another level compared to all of the punk bands around today.

There is not just space for being serious and socially conscious, as the record has also moments of funny stuff, as 13 Stiches or We Got Two Jealous Agains, which is about meeting your girlfriend that has the same albums that you own. Idiots Are Taking Over, Medio-core, Decom-Posuer are even

destined to become punk-rock classics. Then you can also say that NOFX still play ska :Anarchy Camp is the proof, a great tune influenced by dixieland and ska. The CD also featured a lot of enanched stuff, including some music videos as for the song Idiot Son Of An Asshole and a trailer of the movie Unprecedented, about the 2000 Us elections.

I think that as a NOFX fan I consider this the fourth best NOFX album in general, and nowadays it is possibly the best stuff you can get from a punkrock band. Get the record, visit Punkvoter.com and also Unprecedented.org.

this cd is pretty damn cool. it has a good lyrical mix of humor and politics with some kick ass sound. its better than pump up the valuum, which wasn't that bad. it's got the same formula of joke song, ska song, slow song, but its cool. NOFX are today's punk and they got their own sound.
