Treatment 5, Osker's debut album, is a rather typical release for the Epitaph label -- aggressive punk with unhinged, snotty vocals and lyrics that alternate between goofy humor and angst-filled catharsis. What sets Osker apart is the relatively young age of its members, which helps lend an especially confrontational brattiness to some of the songs here. Of course, that means the album will hold a strong appeal for fans of modern-day punk-pop, since it's a pretty well executed debut anyway.
