ANTITHOUGHT: Life’s Too Long: Cassette

May 20, 2014

Let’s talk about “fuck” for a sec. A quick preliminary scan of the lyric sheet revealed close to forty of ‘em in five songs (which turned out to be seven minutes long). I’m all for free expression, but I also believe in the law of diminishing marginal returns, which says something loses its impact with repetition. This is all in the way of saying I thought these cats had a tough row to hoe. Well, fuck me! Antithought’s gruff punk is perfectly suited for such fucking sentiment, what with their mixture of street punk and fucking Negative Approach: anthemic and pissed. That’s what I get for reading a lyric sheet first.
