ARMY OF JESUS: Book Bomb: EP

This was recorded at the same time as the other 7” (Prosperity Health Finance Wealth) but this one sounds a million times better, (note to bands: go ahead and drop the extra hundred bucks on mastering your record, it’s worth it!) much more in-your-face, meaner and uglier than the last one. They’re still pissed at cops and bosses and rich honkies, but they take it a step further by unleashing their hatred on monetary systems (but you still gotta pay for the record), the music industry (but they still got the records pressed at United), and Myspace (how’d you book the tour, guys? On the phone? It’s 2006.) While it’s essentially the same band as their other two records, this particular release comes across as too preachy and complain-y. I think Doug should start smoking weed again.
