Against Me! As The Eternal Cowboy

Against Me! As The Eternal Cowboy by Against Me!
Released: Nov 2003
Label: Fat Wreck Chords
When Laura Jane Grace's nasal-yelp goes supernova, as it does most excessively on "Rice and Bread" and "T.S.R.," Against Me! sound like Violent Femmes crashing a VW bug into Rancid (or something along those lines). Then again, on "Sink, Florida, Sink" and "You Look Like I Need a Drink," they sound like The Misfits recording a MTV Unplugged session with steel guitars. The underlying point to these comparisons is that no matter how punkish the music gets, Against Me! as the Eternal Cowboy is a folk-rock album at its core, and Jane, for all the angst and attitude, is a singer-songwriter at heart.
