Side A comes out guns blazing with two punch-drunk, Sparks-fueled pop-punk nuggets. The title track, "Year of the Snake" is the perfect opener as the drums and bass kick the door open with reckless disregard while, the singer ponders a perfectly valid question: “Who’s the captain of this ship? / Because we’re sinking in the shit.”
Side B closes up shop with a choice cover of the Wipers’ "Youth of America." Anyone familiar with the Humanoids won’t be too surprised with their choice to rock the hell out of a fun-as-hell cover. More shows than not, these fellas manage to tip their hats to pop-punkers who trudged paths before them (i.e. Descendents, Face to Face, etc).
