Self Entitled doesn't see NOFX branching out much, musically, lyrically, or stylistically. The band doesn't take an if-it-ain't-broke stance as much as the aging punkers are self-aware within their role as a decades-running band, and any growth within their institution is going to be personal more than musical. Some of the album's best moments come in the glimpses into this self-awareness. There's nothing outstanding here but fans of the band will have no complaints, and for newcomers it's as good a starting point as any, with arguably the same ratio of clever understated brilliance to uninspired mediocrity as any other phase of their discography.
With Self-Entitled making NOFX’s 12th album release, many could wonder if the long term punk outfit can keep up the angst fuelled fire many of their earlier albums. The answer is yes. The instrumental side of this album is nothing hugely impressive, yet it has the ability to pull you in with the pop-ish characteristics and energy that is found throughout. The focus of this album like most NOFX records is on the vocals. From the extremely catchy ‘Cell Out’ which follows Mike performing his usual narration of a situation, with the focus being on the apparent selling out of NOFX since the early 90’s. A much more morose song is the track ‘I Got One Jealous, Again’ which follows a narration of how Fat Mike’s relationship with his ex-wife decayed and fell apart. It sends a chill through the spine to hear the recount of possessions that Mike was allowed.

NOFX approached 'Self Entitled' with a reinvigorated virility. The 12 tracks fully embrace the hostile early LA punk sound while maintaining just the right amount of that trademark technical and melodic sound that NOFX is renowned for. As with all NOFX albums, the subject matter on 'Self Entitled' is diverse (politics, religion, s&m, et., but there is a more cohesive mood this time around. The majority of the songs display a more personal perspective from Fat Mike, which lends a more intimate feeling to the album over-all. As a long time NOFX fan, I can say I was very pleased with the new album. Yes, it's faster, there are no Ska or Reggae songs, but the album is true and sincere and makes a refreshing return to the band's old sound. Less Ska/Regg, More Rock indeed! I can hear echoes of "Ribbed" "White Trash" "The War On Errorism" and "Coasters".
