Ace Troubleshooter by Ace Troubleshooter is a decent CD if you're into punk. It's a cross between older Green Day and MXPX. Pretty basic. It opens up with a song called "SE 101," a really good song with a good beat and good guitar. That is followed up by "Denise," a song about a girl named Denise (you guessed it!). It has a very MXPX style of song, even lyrically. Some highlights on this record are "Tonight" and "My Way."

A lot of the songs on the album carry the emo-type style of lyrics. "My Way" talks about questioning God's plan for the singer's life. But at the end, he declares his total dependence on God. "Yesterday" is a good song about prayer. The next song, "I Corinthians 13" is an OK song that talks about love. This song is based off the 'love' chapter in the Bible.

Perhaps my favorite song is "Phoenix," a half praise and admission-of-failure song. "Yoko" is about, what I think it is about anyway, is Yoko Ono. The one who some say broke up the Beatles. I think that it's written for any guy to be careful whom he dates. There's also an instrumental track called "Fortress." It's good, but they could have done more on this, which closes out the CD.

I was surprised by how much I liked the CD. It could have been better, but it's decent. The lead singer John Warne has a decent voice and he wrote all the songs. Look for these guys over the next few years. If they release a new album in the near future, it should be one to check out.
