Again, For the First Time
This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
After a three-year hiatus, Nashville's propulsive pop-punk act Bleach return with a grittier, heavier sound for their positive anthems. Almost every one of the songs on Again, for the First Time
sounds made for radio in the best sense, especially the stripped-down, super catchy "Fell Out" and the fuzzed-out "Baseline," with its shouted refrain of "Let's break out." Fans of Jimmy Eat World
, the Newsboys
, and Audio Adrenaline
will find much to enjoy on this spirited release of honest, thick-glasses punk. A little more diversity would be nice, but as the old saying goes, if it ain't broke, why fix it? --Mike McGonigal
