ACTIVE MINDS: The Freedom of the Borough: 7”

Sep 26, 2018

Brutal and combative left wing U.K. hardcore at its best—Active Minds make me want to go out roaming the streets to bellow, howl, and punch Nazis. Perhaps most interesting about this record, though, is that instead of a mere lyric sheet, each song in the booklet is accompanied with what is more or less an op-ed that explains why the ideas in the song are so vital. That kind of commitment should be applauded, as should the sonic beatdown that Active Minds deliver. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Looney Tunes)
