I'm constantly searching for new band's to be inspired by, and this album hit's the mark. Every once in a while I check out the streams posted on punknews.org of band's that I have never heard of, rarely ever have I found anything worth looking into further. When I heard the first song off this album I knew there was something good going on here. The hardcore laden vocals over quick to mid tempo well crafted punk rock music. The album just gets better from there, adding songs with more melody but never losing that hardcore touch. Overall this is a great first album by a band that is virtually unheard of, and almost impossible to find anymore information on other than that they hail from Boston. Some of the songs here are reminiscent of Strike Anywhere minus the in your face political over tones. Punk rock has so many different styles to choose from, not a lot of bands are able to seamlessly meld a variety of the styles together without losing the listener along the way. Great Lakes USA have certainly pulled it off here, at least in my opinion. For fans of Strike Anywhere, The Bronx, The Loved Ones, Good Riddance, New Mexican Disaster Squad, The Unseen and just aggressive punk rock music in general.

Considering the raucousness of this album – and how loudly I have been playing it, over and over, for the past few hours – the fact that I feel speechless has got to be ironic, right? Great Lakes USA is a power trio from Boston that delivers 3-minute blasts of hardcore fury within the context of beautifully crafted 3-minute punk songs, with just the right amount of melody and just the right amount of aggression to… well, to be pretty damn close to perfect, honestly. For reference, what keeps running through my mind when I listen to – ha!, like it’s possible simply to ‘listen to’ this record – when I absorb every sonic fiber of and get lost within the grooves of ‘Live Fast, Die Whenever’ is that this – this! – is what it would sound like to play my favorite Jawbreaker records and my favorite Born Against records at the exact same time, in perfect synchronicity, causing stars to align and all sorts of other weird, mystical stuff. Musically and vocally and lyrically – check out the song titles!: ‘No Girlfriends’, ‘Grown Up Stuff’, ‘I Sold My Liver Down The River’, ‘Rambling Dudes Forever’, ‘Let’s Face It, This Sucks’, ‘Live Fast, Die Whenever’, ‘Drink & Stagger’, ‘Ghosts’, ‘Black Coffee’, ‘No Boyfriends (Just Cats) – and musically and vocally and… oh, I’ve already gone down that path… well, in summation, this record just flat-out rules. It rules, OK?
