My Dinosaur Life

Motion City Soundtrack's 4th release and most current release, "My Dinosaur Life" may turn out to be my favorite of the bunch.

Make no mistake about it, this is another power-pop album that's catchy as ever and Justin Pierre's "quirkiness" is at an all time high. After four albums one would assume this man has zero self-esteem. His "quirkiness" has not diminished as that is the ever-trend he tries to exude. He claims in the first single "Her Words Destroyed My Planet" that he "quit smoking weed" but I don't buy it...

The album is great, my favorites include the above mentioned, Worker Bee, Disappear, Delirium, Hysteria and @!#?@!. I personally feel that the song "History Lesson" would be much better if performed by Flogging Molly.

Below is them performing on Jimmy Fallon (just click on the last hash mark as the performance is always the last thing on late night tv. I'd like to see that change, but that's another conversation for another time...)



And below is the official music video if above is too much work...

Linkage

1. If you don't buy his artwork his cat will be forced to get a job and she lacks what we commonly refer to as "people skills."

2. Life is too hard to be upset all the time. Let these guys be mad for you...
