We gave it a C+

What with the graceful evolution of bands like Green Day and blink-182, pop-punk is no longer considered the doofy skate-rat stepcousin to ”real” rock music. Goldfinger aren’t exactly aiding the revolution, however. Good-natured, ska-tinged jauntiness aside, the band’s lyrics make Smash Mouth look like Sartre, and its anthemic choruses never quite jell into actual good songs. Ultimately, Disconnection comes off as sunny as high noon, and as shallow as low tide.
