Pretty nice slice of D-beat featuring some names you'd recognise if I mentioned them. I wouldn't say things are necessarily perfect, but all four songs are well put together and I like that the guitar sounds thin and rangy, kinda like someone slipping a loop of piano wire around your neck and snarling in your ear while they pull it tight. That things are generously seasoned with a whole bunch of rollicking guitar solos also stands as anotther hearty point int their favour. While the vocals are a nondescript blurghhh and the lyrics are sometimes kinda funny (boredom, death, despair and a faint whiff of reined-in perversion) I'd say it all balances out quite well and that if you like the rockier, more motörcharged end of the d-beat spectrum then you won't have too much to complain about.
