Biography

Let's get this straight. Your average punk band doesn't sell out venues like the 14,000-capacity Long Beach Arena. Your average punk band doesn't organize benefit shows for charities like the Surfrider Foundation. And your average punk band doesn't last fifteen months these days let alone fifteen years. For fuck's sake - PENNYWISE is not and never will be your average punk ... Read more in Amazon's Pennywise Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

On Land of the Free?--a record inspired by the worldwide protests against the World Trade Organization--L.A. skatecore veterans Pennywise claim to have written "a soundtrack for political activists all over the world." That this, their seventh album, is one of their finest to date is not due to any inspired political invective. The anthemic barrage of the opening "Time Marches On" sets the tone for an album whose music impacts like a police baton charge. Pennywise work so well as a complete band, it's often nothing short of breathtaking; just listen to the way Randy Bradbury's deft bass lines cleverly weave around the chugging juggernaut riffage dealt out by guitarist Fletcher Dragg on the towering holler-along "F**k Authority." The politics might not be expressed with an eloquence as revolutionary as Pennywise clearly think, but forget about that. Land of the Free? is a reminder of the sheer seismic power of punk rock. --Louis Pattison

Customer Reviews

This cd is the one of the best cd's by Pennywise.
Anthony Bedegi
This is a good place for new Pennywise fans to start, along with "About Time" "The Fuse" and their self titles debut.
Nick Colosi
Defintely worth it for Pennywise fans, and a great experience for newcomers.

That's the question I hear alot from people when they give their first listen. Yes it is Pennywise, and their return this year with "Land of the free?" is being hailed by some and criticized by others. Personally, I think this was a great return from Pennywise after being absent for some time, and their new anti-political attitude is actually quite enjoyable. Now don't get me wrong, this is the same group you learned to love on "About time", with intense guitar work, fast drumming and great lyrics. The real difference between this release and their earlier works rests in the lyrics, which are aimed at the United States Government, and the recent violet WTO riots. Everything seems to come together quite nicly as one fast paced, over the edge punk rock formula. Defintely worth it for Pennywise fans, and a great experience for newcomers.

I was incredibly excited to get this new Pennywise album. I had downloaded two songs from Pennywisdom.com "The World" and "Time Marches On" and boy howdee was I pumped for June 19th! Unfortunately, I was not as happy with the new album as I had hoped to be. Some of the songs seem a bit old and the lyrics of couple songs like "My God," while strong in message, lacked some of the more inspiration found on earlier albums. BUT that is not to say that the album should not be bought because some of the tracks, "The World", "F**k Authority," and "Time Marches On" being the strongest, are every bit as intense, powerful, and insightful as anything they've done. As soon as the crowd is cut off by Fletcher's guitar on "Time Marches On," I felt the pulse-pounding, guitar riffs, coursing through my veins, sending my head into convulsions as my teeth began to rumble and crack from the sheer force of the sound assaulting me from my stereo. There is filler on this album, but there are enough standout tracks also present to make this album a must buy for any Pennywise album. As was made evident on the previous album, "Straight Ahead," Pennywise is starting to mature. Good bands do. Though I wouldn't reccomend this album to anybody just beginning to discover the musical force that is Pennywise (It doesn't have the fluidity and consistency of past releases like"About Time" and "Full Circle") I definitely would reccomend it to the true believers. "Land of the Free" isn't their greatest album, but was most assuredly not discouraging and if Pennywise continue on as they did on "Land of the Free" I will look forward to the next album (And their current Warped Tour dates!) and every release after that.

Land of the free is more powerful than From the ashes(not that FTA don't rock, it rocks trust me!) for some reasons, it has a type a punch on this one that isn't on other PW albums, which make the mood of the album really louder and powerful!

Pennywise is one of the few bands where when I only heard one album, I ended up immediately getting all of their others. This was probably over a year ago or so, and they still continue to be one of my most listened-to bands. I've enjoyed all of their stuff, and "Land of the Free?" is certainly no exception.

The album has great music that feels both ferocious and urgent. As with all of their other works, "Land of the Free?" deals with anger when it comes to politics, religion and society. With a title like "Land of the Free?" that is something you immediately expect. Although you do not have to agree with their point-of-view to enjoy their tunes, there will be those who might be put off by the music. Songs can be fast and intense ("Land of the Free?" "Something Wrong with Me," "WTO"), and some numbers can be a little slower but still powerful nonetheless ("Anyone Listening," "My God," "Divine Intervention").

While I enjoy the entire album, favorite tracks of mine would be "F*** Authority," "Land of the Free?" "Something Wrong with Me," "Divine Intervention," "My God," "Who's On Your Side," "WTO" and the powerful closer, "Anyone Listening."

"Land of the Free?" is a great Pennywise album for long-time fans and newcomers. While it may not be for everyone, I have to say that it has some killer guitar riffs and lyrics. Songs will easily get stuck in your head even after just one listen. If you haven't had a chance to check out Pennywise, I strongly encourage you to check out some of their tracks and see if they're something you'd like. That's what happened to me. I only heard a few songs by them and I was instantly hooked. A great addition to the already large Pennywise catalogue. - Michael Crane

After 2 years Pennywise is back with the follow up to 99's masterpiece "Straight Ahead". Though a solid effort from the band, I can't help but feel a little disappointed. The reason: there is little or no progression from the last album to this one. With the release of the song "Alien" on Straight Ahead Pennywise looked to be expanding their horizons. But this album finds them repeating themselves. There is a fine line between a band "staying true to their sound", and repeating themselves, and Pennywise are getting dangerously close. Even on the production they take a step back. Whereas the guitars were clean on SA, here there is too much bottom end in the mix, and the sound is too thick. The drums, usually a highlight on Pennywise albums, suffer here from a dull, warm sound. They should have gone with a punchier higher pitch snare. (Check out the snare on Straight Ahead, and see there is no comparison.) There are some standout tracks here: The World, My God, Divine Intervention, and WTO, rock like classic Pennywise. I was just hoping for a bit more...
