The album is is irreverent yet heartfelt.
Daniel Schmidt
This is, to me, the most important album of 2009 because I am biased and have been a fan for over a decade.
M. A. Piasecki
If at first you listen and don't like it because it's different from the rest, good.

I'm a Big fan of this band. This album is one of their most impressive efforts, if not their best. I've listened through only a couple times now but I think there are some stunners on this record. This album smells and tastes a little different than previous albums due in part to it's great recording quality and also to a sort of evolution in the song writing. They're trying new stuff on this album and it works. But the band still retains a fearless full frontal flagellating mission I have always enjoyed. This album is still very much Dillinger Four, but like any band worth listening to they are not writing stagnant riffs that echo all albums past (well maybe a few). And hate me for saying it, but some of this stuff is just damn beautiful. Beautiful like honest, unadulterated, human expression can be. They're still cleverly deriding church, state and vapid celebrities but there is also some more personal work here that is really brilliant. Six years since they're last release- which sucks-but after having heard this record, all is forgotten.

I can't say anything bad about these guys. I've tried to think of something...just can't do it. Back in 1995 or 1996 was my first encounter with these guys. At the time I referred to them as Dillinger Three. Their original guitar player had left to start up Man Afriad (I think) and hadn't yet gotten Billy into the roster yet. Still, it was brilliant.
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.

6 years waiting for this, I can't help but feel mild disappointment. The sound is way more polished than previous D4 albums, which sucks the energy out of the music.

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.

Nothing will ever be as good as listening to "Midwestern Songs of the Americas" for the first time. This has everything that built D4 into a headline name, but is just a LITTLE too polished. Easily my least favorite D4 album, but from any other band this would be a 5 star winner. I suppose that it's only real flaw is not being a re-release of their first album. Regardless, if you're a fan this is a must buy.

Dillinger Four is the perfect punk rock band. The goal for any band should be to out do their previous efforts. And I played Situationist, over and over to death! But here with the latest D4 record you get it even better, their finest output to date. If it's going to take them six years to make a record and it's going to be so much better? Sign me up! I have loved, LOVED, every record they have put out, I know folks hold up Midwestern Songs as their finest, but it is in fact this one, for now, till the next one. Be objective,listen, take in, and realize this to be so. Is the production slick? Moreso than any other record? I don't know, I have been listening to the songs. There is no such thing as too poor of production for a punk record, but there is too slick? Please. Complaints about this record are invalid. A+/5 out of 5/masterpeice.
