Brand new studio release from these veteran U.K. punkers. Having only recently discovered the awesomeness of the band’s live show (I know, shame on me), I was pleasantly surprised to find out they can still produce in the studio. Fans of early Clash and Cock Sparrer will find lots to love here. But The Adicts absolutely have their own distinctive sound. Luckily “Give It to Me Baby” is not an Offspring cover. Monkey croons in one song—”stop the world I wanna get off.” But I want to hang on for the ride. Viva!
