POZ Review: Simple Plan - Get Your Heart On - The Second Coming

When it came to The Great Simple Plan-Good Charlotte Debate of my middle school years — like *NSYNC versus Backstreet Boys, but with less synchronized choreography and more eyeliner — Simple Plan always edged ahead by a small margin. Both bands represented rebellion, freedom and the gateway to good music to 13-year-old me, but there was something about Simple Plan’s catchy hooks and emotion-filled lyrics that persuaded me to spin No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls in my stereo until it started to skip. Sadly, the aforementioned gateway eventually led me away from these particular pop-punkers, after my copy of Just Balls stopped working, and toward the wealth of bands I had yet to become familiar with.

Well, I finally got back on the Simple Plan saddle, and my favorite French-Canadian fivesome is back with their latest dick joke-entitled release, Get Your Heart On - The Second Coming!, the follow-up to their 2011 full-length Get Your Heart On. The seven-song EP is riddled with classic Simple Plan pop-rock tracks among some not-so-great tunes that carry just a little too many electro-pop effects for my liking.

The EP starts off strong with “Ordinary Life,” a rhythmic proclamation of the group’s preference of the touring-band culture over office-job etiquette. The lighter, guitar-prominent verses tell of the band’s disdain for the standard nine-to-five lifestyle, and the full-bodied choruses thrust vocalist Pierre Bouvier’s anti-corporate anthem through the speakers. The track has that well-established SP sound we’ve come to love — the familiar progressive pop reminds me of passing sweaty crowd-surfers over my head during the band’s Virginia Beach Warped Tour set in 2011.
