Tricks and Treats

by Vista Blue

Make a Wish 02:01


Over the course of its thirty-plus releases so far, Vista Blue has been sliding between pop-punk and power pop - more often than not landing a little closer to the former. Tricks and Treats finds the Nashville-based outfit going all-in on pop-punk like never before. The band tears through 11 rocket-fueled tunes that meld buzzsaw guitars with a sugar rush of melodies and lyrics that can only be described as wonderfully fun. And honestly, the group could not have picked a more suitable avenue for wearing its pop-punk heart on its sleeve. There’s just something about pop-punk that lends itself to the Halloween season. Or is it the Halloween season that lends itself to pop-punk? Seriously: How many Ramones fans do you know that don't love horror movies? And surely every pop-punk kid intrigued by horror has known the very real horrors of rejection and unrequited love. Tricks and Treats takes on both of those kinds of horror. It’s full of songs about scary creatures, scary exes, trick or treating, haunted houses, young love, and of course horror movies (the reason for the season!). This is the ultimate pop-punk album and the ultimate Halloween album - which of course are one and the same. Whether you're a kid or just a kid of heart, you won't want to go through another October without this album. - Josh, Faster and Louder (
