“Geoff Useless has long been a master of ultra-catchy power-pop and pop-punk in bands like The Guts and She’s A Guy (he’s also toured as a member of the Queers.) But on “Don’t Stop,” he indulges his country side, adding a lot of twang (along with some pedal steel, fiddle, and acoustic guitars) on a collection of bright, sassy cowpunk tunes. While the instrumentation and arrangements go country, Geoff’s ingratiating, boyish vocals still sell the tunes, his lyrical wit remains intact, and of course country-western’s as catchy as pop-punk anyway. Geoff throws in a Beatles cover (“I’ve Just Seen A Face”) and a Guts cover (“Easy Come, Easy Go,”) and there are still traces of Geoff’s pop-punk proclivities on some of the backup vocals and power-pop choruses. Your enthusiasm for this album will depend on your regard for country-western tropes and the trebly sound of pedal steel replacing the usual punk-rock sonics of electric guitars and bass.”
