69 ENFERMOS: Beyond Borders: CD

Dateline: mid-‘90s. Punk rock has reared its slightly less ugly head. The sound is different now. Bands are getting signed by record labels worldwide. Harmonies, galloping drums, and soaring guitars rule the day. Bands like No Use For A Name, NOFX, and Lagwagon are some of the leading names in this new style of rebellion. Flash forward twenty years. The aforementioned bands are still among the top names in this subgenre. The thing is; it is hard to play this style and not sound like those bands. 69 Enfermos are very capable at this. Hell, if someone put this on and told me it was the new Strung Out record, I would have absolutely no reason to think they were lying. Not bad, but not terribly stimulating.
