Album This Is Only a Test. This Is Only A Test Lyrics. Congratulations, you made the team Looks like you're living the American dream But the odds are not what they seem And you can't trust the referee. The game is fixed and you're surprised Lifetime supply of chocolate covered compromise And the long, slow painful demise Of your own autonomy. Now everybody thinks you're so great And they all wanna be your But don't be too impressed, this is only a test This is only a test, this is only a test. It's easy now for you to win With empty confidence and.

Album · 2011 · 10 Songs. Three years since their last album of original material, Smoking Popes return with a concept album about the life of an everyday teenager. Singer and songwriter Josh Caterer masterfully slips behind the eyes of his younger self to imagine a time when crushes were mysterious and a matter of life or death, when being a punk rocker meant his self-identity. All of this is brought together with great melodies and a tight band crunch. More straightforward than Weezer and with a flow as natural as the Ramones or the Descendants, Smoking Popes have never lost their punk-pop cred.

For This Is Only a Test, Smoking Popes' second studio album since reuniting in 2005 and sixth overall, the band have decided to eschew all that for an album dedicated to the exuberance of youth. This is a concept album written from the perspective of a teenage boy. Adolescence is all over this album, right down to the school bus on the cover. Lyrically, the album hits a lot the main points of one's high school years (getting mono; trying to make the team; the anxiety that arrives before leaving for college). These are small complaints, though. Aside from a couple blunders, This Is Only a Test is a thoroughly enjoyable pop-rock album. At a brisk 10 songs totaling less than 40 minutes, it leaves you wanting more. Plenty to sing along to here. It's no Destination Failure, but hey, what is?
