Being from Minnesota I had an obligation to hold the banner high for these guys. I still have fond memories of sitting in my apartment and wearing out the "All The Kids Are Dead" E.P. and "Girlfriends and Bubblegum" 7"s. These guys have put out one solid release after another with Verses God being their most lackluster album.
In my opinion this album, Civil War is going to keep D4 out of the Vegas lounge retirement plan of playing Midwestern Songs front to back for all of eternity. Maybe it's because I've listened to Midwestern Songs so much, but I think this album surpases it somehow. The songs are more catchy and hook-laden than anything I've heard from these guys. The production is more polished so I was expecting it to lose some of the grit from previous releases. Top Notch.
But as always, with every release from Dillinger Four I am left feeling a bit worried. Might this be their last? Between The Triple Rock Social Club, Extreme Noise Records, having kids, and having a real personal life it's very understandable but man, I couldn't imagine life without their music.
Get this album or any of their others if you want to just rock the hell out. This is, to me, the most important album of 2009 because I am biased and have been a fan for over a decade.
In this new album you will hear not only Dillinger Four classic style but also all of their influences without blatantly ripping them off. You will be captivated by the number of times the song changes as you listen to it. If at first you listen and don't like it because it's different from the rest, good. It is you that needs to change your perspective and stop trying to force it on others. By the time you understand what I am saying this will be one of the best punk rock efforts of all time.
I don't drink anymore but if I did I would be playing Fruity Pebbles continually at the bar and raising my glass with all my old friends.
It's pretty middle of the road for D4 (which automatically makes it more enjoyable than most punk albums of late). Going back and listening to Midwestern Songs of the Americas, however, just shows me how much better it could have been.

The lyrical content of their past releases is still pretty much alive and intact, but the sound is completely alien. This album was WAAAAAAAY overproduced. Read morePublished on July 27, 2010 by nuckinfutz
