AGAINST ME!: As the Eternal Cowboy: CD

I’m probably the only person I know who didn’t go completely apeshit over this band’s first record. Don’t get me wrong, I like it and everything. It’s just that every time I’d listen to it, I’d think of something else that I’d rather listen to, like Sockeye. I didn’t have any expectations for this album, but it really caught me off guard. The drumming sounds a lot better than their first album, the singing is much more tuneful, and the guitar sounds, surprisingly enough, like it came off an early Cure album. Granted, I think the last two songs on this album completely suck, but the other nine songs are pretty fucking awesome, so I guess I’m converted. –Not Josh
