AllMusic Review by Timothy Monger;  Score: ***½
★λ★•     On Going Grey, their second release for the Warner~distributed Fueled by Ramen label, New Jersey weirdos the Front Bottoms exhibit mild signs of growing up. From their roots as a chaotic lo~fi acoustic punk act to charting high on Billboard’s Top 200 with 2015’s more polished Back on Top, Brian Sella and Matthew Uychich have come a long way with their strange and spazzy brand of indie pop. While Sella’s stream of consciousness confessional vocal rants have been somewhat tamed since his early days, the added structure provides a welcome framework as the band continues to evolve into its next phase. As with their previous release, Going Grey melds a pop punk melodicism with a bit of ’90s indie slackery, adding a bit more pop nuance this time around in the form of some clever synth parts and nice harmonies tucked neatly in the mix.
★λ★•     The Front Bottoms have proven their boundless energy many times over, but some of the album’s more midtempo rockers stand out as creative high points like “Bae,” “Grand Finale,” and “Everyone But You.” While they’re not quite low~key offerings, a little restraint here and there does this band some good and shines a light on their abundance of strong melodies. As its title suggests, Going Grey is rife with themes of nostalgia and the passage of time, from the wistful “Vacation Town” to the warm, ’80s~inflected reflections of “Trampoline.” More tonally diverse and thoughtfully arranged than the Bottoms’ previous output, Going Grey is still wily enough to please longtime fans while adding new layers to their sound.

About The Front Bottoms
★λ★•     The Front Bottoms are an indie rock duo from New Jersey whose music is a wildly eclectic blend of pop, rock, and punk influences accompanied by witty lyrics that offer a rapid~fire, slightly surreal perspective on the world around them. The Front Bottoms are vocalist Brian Sella on guitars and vocals and Mathew Uychich on drums and bullhorn. Hailing from Bergen County, New Jersey, Sella and Uychich have been friends since they were ten years old, and started writing songs together when Sella was in sixth grade. After years of making music on their own, Sella and Uychich decided to take their act to the stage at a high school talent show, where they played an original song as well as a Modest Mouse cover. Sella’s mother hoped to encourage the boys by buying them some time at a local recording studio, where they managed to record 12 songs in just three hours. With enough original songs to play a set, the Front Bottoms were booked to play an all~ages show at a club in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey with a handful of local bands; there they met Casey Lee Morgan, who was running sound that night and recorded music in his home studio.
★λ★•     Morgan began doing sessions with the duo, and in 2008, the Front Bottoms put out a self~released album, I Hate My Friends, and hit the road, making their way up and down the East Coast and playing any makeshift venue that would have them. ★λ★•     Another D.I.Y. album, My Grandmother vs. Pneumonia, was released in 2009, and an EP appeared in 2010. Early on in their touring exploits, Brian Uychich (Mathew’s brother) joined the duo on keyboards and vocals, but he left the group in 2011 to pursue his education, and the Front Bottoms returned to a duo. In 2011, the band signed a deal with respected New Jersey independent label Bar/None Records, and their first album for their new sponsors, simply titled The Front Bottoms, was issued in September 2011. They followed it up with 2013’s Talon of the Hawk, and in 2014, released a six~song EP of previously unreleased fan favorites titled Rose, which is supposedly the first in a series of EPs to be named after the bandmembers’ grandmothers. In April 2015, they released a split EP called Liberty and Personality with rapper GDP, followed by their third studio album, the Fueled by Ramen~issued Back on Top, in September of that year. Over the next two years, the Front Bottoms continued to raise their profile, playing at Coachella and Austin City Limits as well as touring the U.K. with blink~182 and Frank Turner. In October 2017, they released Going Grey, their second LP for Fueled by Ramen. ~ Mark Deming
