BROADCAST ZERO: Some Concerns Regarding This Revolt: CD

Dec 28, 2010

As with their preceding album, I’m having a bit of trouble reconciling the fact that while I like the fact they express their positions intelligently, I’m not too hip on their rigid adherence to the “melodic street punk by numbers” template. When I read the lyric sheet—usually the kiss of death for most modern bands pandering to this genre—I’m thinkin’, “They’ve put some thoughts into getting their point across,” but when I listen to the music, I’m thinkin’ “Wow, mix ‘n’ match punk.” I respect ‘em, and I really wanna like ‘em, but I’m having helluva time with the latter.
