ANCHOR ARMS: Cold Blooded: CD

This album is good. Definitely. And probably if I didn’t have a full stable of bands of this ilk that I already listen to regularly, I think I’d be significantly more enthusiastic about it. I actually really dug the Milligrams 7”, and while this is good, catchy, melodic, undeniably Gainesville-bred punk rock, I started to lose interest about halfway through. I’m not writing this off by any means. I imagine a live viewing might do well to sway my opinion. It’s quite possible, even likely, that Anchor Arms will work their way into my steady rotation, but I just wasn’t floored right off the bat.
