Amuse is a pop-punk trio that comes from Indiana. Whereas most punk and pop punk bands changed from their song that everybody loved, Amuse is sticking to the roots of where pop punk came from. They have shared the stage with bands like Bowling For Soup, The Ataris, Every Avenue, Just Surrender, MC Chris, The Dangerous Summer, Ice Nine Kill, Big D And The Kids Table, Whole Wheat Bread, Eleventyseven and more.
Amuse is for anyone looking for fun, catchy, upbeat punk music that makes you want to get up and jump around. The band has been writing and recording music since 2001. If you like Blink 182, Sum 41 or Green Day, then you really can’t miss with this band. “Love Song For Your Dad” by Amuse contains 10 tracks plus one bonus track that represents a solid album with great hooks, fierce-some rhythms and tight melodies.
I’ve spun the album about 20 times already and haven’t gotten tired of it yet, and I doubt I will. This is a set of tracks that you won’t want to stop listening to. It has a flow to it, where the song before and after the one you’re listening to, somehow relates to each other. I think it’s great because it really gives the album an unexpected impetus.
These guys are polished musicians and the sound is crisp but still has a live feel to it, which is essential in any CD that you wanna rock out to, plus the vocals are awesome. The songs tackle the areas of friendship, girl-chasing, hopelessness, heartbreak, plain old teen angst and the odd goofballness. Which is what makes this genre so particularly attractive to all youth, as it reflects their everyday lives so perfectly.

The standout tracks for me, are the obvious ones like, “#YOGO,” “B.J.S,” “Go F*ck Yourself,” “General Hospital,” “Disaster” and “Krys Cries,” but as you can see, I’ve already mentioned much of the first part and more than half of the album already! That’s because there’s not a dud track to be found here. In a nutshell this album has it all, outstanding energy, clear talent, and a consistency across tracks that I wish many other albums had.
I think that “Love Song For Your Dad” embodies the no-pretense attitude of the band perfectly. The hooks they play are irresistible by pop standards, paving the way track after track for some crafty songwriting. Their mix of punk-rock angst with dance-pop beats are absolutely overpowering. Amuse could be singing about a broken heart or a family tragedy, yet the intense energy they produce, still makes you want to jump up and dance!
You should really get this if you are into punk, pop/punk, rock or just want to here some great music. The true to life lyrics, catchy melodies, and musical talent all combine to form a great album.
Amuse have captured the everyday angst and struggles of many a teen on “Love Song For Your Dad.”
This album is seriously wicked. You better get it fast, because soon its gonna be sold out!!!
