I sorta hesitate to recommend this album to the fine JfH readers. Reason being is because, in all honesty, it's not really all that good of an album. But Philmore's self-titled album is fun, quirky and, if nothing else, entertaining. Now "Our Finest Hour" is a good song, so it does have its moment in the sun. There are good times to be had by listening to "In My Boat," worshipful moments during "As I Lift My Hands," and a good cover of Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." I'll also go ahead and say that "Fishy" was a fantastic representation of my life for a few years while I searched for <em>my</em> fish in the sea. So while <em>Philmore</em> may not be the most quality pop/punk album from the year 2000, it definitely held a spot in my CD player. ~ Scott Fryberger

So, what are your thoughts on and experiences with the album Philmore? Do you recommend it? If so, why?
Oh man, this was such a fun album. I understand how it would seem strange to "recommend it", because you have to take it for what it is....a fun fun record...and nothing more. "The Bare Truth About Philmore"...the second record...that's a great one too!
