When it comes to music I could use to be much, much more savvy; have this difficult time sampling new albums, songs, bands due to scarce time, let alone studying interviews, articles, reviews, and it was only thanks to a plug on behalf of Brand New that I was made aware of the Reps. Glad I was, I think.

A first listen-through on Pure Volume left me unimpressed. I felt the riffs were uninspired and that some of the more somber songs were ruined by heavier 90's-esque breakdowns, but something brought me back, and repeated listenings warmed me to the better offerings and the close-to-greatness-highlights which contain just enough as to induce a love-hate addiction. The album starts with a title track, and the message is a tired one. "Monoculture" is a term used mostly in agriculture, where one species is cultivated over a vast area. The title song rails against consumerism, and is possibly asserting that a mass media society has programed, or "cultured", "raised", "bred" us into thoughtless machines, to be told what and how to consume, most being kept too occupied for much independent thought. The criticism's fair and the conclusions are scary. It's not a very nice world that's being painted and these are astute and dismal warnings with motifs of suffocation, but it doesn't change the fact that the same warnings have been preached for decades, that the message's been repeated chronically, is passe, cliched. The sound is heavy, and although 'not really' still strikes me as somewhat industrial, with ringing feedback and distortion, the voice track having been modulated with overdrive or distortion or something. Think: a little hint of Desaparecidos, in my opinion more poetic, metaphors being used cleverly sometimes.

This is a reasonable CD album to have if you like the off kind view of Christian Music that I think most people don't listen to. It's pretty different from melodious music but it's for those who like different music I think. It's pretty good for off music people in the Christian sect if they like Rock. It's OK occasionally but I don't listen to it all the time.

As sacrilegious to music as this might be, I'm still going to say it. I can sum up this album in one word: Nirvana. Yeah Monoculture feels good, sure, but you know that's not what I'm talking about. Without Kurt Cobain, and removed a full twenty years, Sainthood Reps has captured the full grunge feeling with a newer format. This is good. This album is good. Give it a listen, you won't be disappointed.
