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 my fish in the sea. So while Philmore may not be the most quality pop/punk album from the year 2000, it definitely held a spot in my CD player. ~ Scott Fryberger
