Best Punk record in the last 5 years,
This review is from: Caution (Audio CD)
I can hear some of you punk-o-philes snickering in the background...5 stars?
Listen up kids, this record is pure brilliance from start to finish. These cats finally stepped to a major and it shows. The production is stellar. The guitar sounds blast through your ear drums like a melodic frieght train, so raw and up front. The vocals are unpolished and heartfelt. Lyrically, Mr. Black grabs your soul and puts it all the way down into his personal gutter only to bring it back inches from the sun. Dare I mention the rhythm section, so tight...Inventive basslines and solid beating of the drums. This records keeps you rocking for the whole ride, never a dull moment.
I want to know where these guys get their influences...they are forging a new sound, a new rock and roll. These rockers are the anti-radio and bring hope for a new music that doesn't sound so much the radio people have come to loathe.
