BOUNCING SOULS/ANTI-FLAG: BYO Split Series, Vol. 4: CD

May 27, 2009

The Bouncing Souls haven’t covered any new ground in years. They’re not a bad band, per se, but every time I hear them, I think of the rumor I once heard about them starting out as a Doors cover band. I don’t know if that rumor is true or not, but the mere fact that it’s plausible speaks volumes. Anti-Flag doesn’t really cover any new ground here, either, but I don’t mind that so much with Anti-Flag. Their lyrics are solid, their melodies are infectious, and they come across with a lot of speed and energy. So I find myself listening to the second half of this split a lot. And the big surprise: Anti-Flag not only covers the Buzzcocks’ “Ever Fallen in Love,” but they also pull it off.
