If My Dinosaur Life has a theme it’s about a breakup and whether Motion City Soundtrack singer Justin Pierre really wants to care about it. On opener “Worker Bee”—a blast of Blink-182 riffs (whose Mark Hoppus produced this album)—he sings, “It went from no good to fucked up to over.” Later, on “Her Words Destroyed My Planet,” he shrugs off the pain, telling an ex, “I finally shaved off my beard/Sold my Xbox to Jimmy down the street/I even stopped smoking weed” while wild synths and guitars back him up. The Weezer-ish “Motherfuckers” is a rocker in which Pierre lifts a middle finger to bullies and warns, “You need to leave me and my sensitive homeboys alone.” You’ve been warned.
