Editorial Reviews

Chicago's own The Lawrence Arms present release Metropole, their first album in eight years, via Epitaph. A beloved band in the punk scene from their inception in 1999, members Brendan Kelly (vocals/bassist), Chris McCaughan (vocals/guitar), and Neil Hennessey (drummer) have released five studio albums to date. Their sixth album and first with Epitaph, Metropole captures "that alone-in-a-crowd, stranger-in-a-strange-land kind of s**t" according to Kelly.

This album is just mind blowingly amazing My husband and I still haven't taken the cd out of the car since receiving.

I can't say I like this album as much as the older ones, but I really enjoyed hearing the band more grown-up than they have been on previous albums.

There's something here for partisans of all things Chris McCaughan/Sundowner as well as those who prefer Brendan Kelly at his most flippant.

I love this band. Their album _The Greatest Story Ever Told_ is singly responsible for my love of Russian literature. But, I was admittedly hesitant before I first streamed this album over at the a.v. club last week. Everything I'd seen and heard from it suggested to me that here was another sad old punk band cutting wax to pay for their kids' private school: the title is kind of bland, the artwork uninspiring, and the first single, "You Are Here," was good but not what I'm used to hearing from a band I've followed for over a decade. "Seventeener" gave me hope. Enough to overcome my doubts? Not really.

Luckily, this album did not meet my reserved expectations. Rather, it gave them the bird as it shot past. I should have known better. The Lawrence Arms are very dedicated to their fans and to their music. They weren't going to put out a floater.

In short: the Larry Arms are back and they're still excellent.

I will say this, though: gave this one time. Several of the songs are more melodic and mature than those on _Oh! Calcutta!_, if that album's ferocity is your jam. The whole thing has a kind of reflective, somber air. Still, it feels representative of the band's entire history - side projects included. There's something here for partisans of all things Chris McCaughan/Sundowner as well as those who prefer Brendan Kelly at his most flippant.

The album is great after listening to it a few times through. The Lawrence Arms sound on Metropole is similar to their younger days, but the lyrics and sound have a rawness to them. It is fitting for a fan that has been listening to these guys through the years. We have gotten older as fans and they as a band. This album really expresses that feeling of getting older. All their albums get me through the day. This one is no exception.

This album is just mind blowingly amazing My husband and I still haven't taken the cd out of the car since receiving. Love the band and all the other albums but this one just strikes a chord or many. They've grown as a band and people and it truly shows in the music. Only thing i regret was not knowing about the extended version first. Track 9 is the best on album in our house. but there's not a single track we don't love.

Another Classic! Eight long years since the lively and acclaimed "Oh Calcutta!", "Metropole" is a more sombering realization of getting older. This release is more of an ode to the city that raised them and all of its other inhabitants. They use clips and soundbites of everyday city noises throughout intros and outros. Lawrence Arms releases have always had their own theme and this is no exception. Don't get me wrong, this is another great release, but dont expect quite the intensity of "Oh Calcutta!" Signature Larry Arms grit and style are very present. I'm so excited they're back and hope its not so long before their next release!

Soulful, melodic, thoughtful, and punkrawk (considered as a diverse spectrum in this respect) in all the right ways. It's the Larry Arms doing what they do so well, arguably with the greatest amount of grit, humor, and heart that they've brought forward thus far (which is saying a heck of a lot!). Bravo, and thanks!

Seems like I've been waiting forever for this. I've got to admit, I was just a tiny bit let down by the latest Sundowner album, but after listening to this one, I guess I get it. I would have done the same (save the best stuff for The Lawrence Arms, that is.)

Not disappointed a bit- hopefully, I catch them on tour this time.
