Punk and Glam fans - I know you are out there - buy this release!
This is the strongest, best, most fun punk rock release since the last Shameless record. And even then, this rocks harder and is a tougher punk orientated release.
15 tracks over 50 minutes is quite long for a punk record, so it's pretty good value also.
If you remember Michael Monroe in his Demolition 23 days, that is as a good an example of what is on offer here that I can find.
Distorted guitars, fast riffs, lose, frantic drum rolls and vocals that seem to jump through the speakers and abuse you personally.
It's hard, it's fast, it's tongue in cheek and can't be taken seriously. If you like guitars in your face and are quite partial to some punk sensibilities, check this out.
BOTTOM LINE: For a punk record, this is very well produced! Well mixed and evenly balanced, it should appeal to those that like a little thrashy pop punk in their musical mix.
