Vue Weekly printed up a glowing review of our debut album.
The Unconditional Love Of Napalmpom
For those about to rock, Napalmpom salute you. These high-flying Calgarians take a fresh spin on the classic rock sound with soaring hooks, shredding guitars and a healthy dose of beer-soaked positivity. Vocalist PJ Lavergne, first discovered by the band at karaoke, croons, “I’m a rock and roll savant / I do whatever I want” on “Get With Me,” summing up the band’s sound perfectly. The group takes listeners through a scattershot history of rock ‘n’ roll, with heavy epics (“Ashes Ashes” and “Greg Ginns’ Sweater”), goofy party anthems like closer “Napalmpom National Anthem” and songs about being broke as a joke like “Running In The Red” all part of the nine-track journey. The Unconditional Love Of Napalmpom is about giving one’s self over to the catharsis of rock ‘n’ roll-and like a sweaty dance pit, it’s a ton of fun. – Jordyn Marcellus
