BURNERS: Adults: Cassette

If Kid Dynamite grew up listening to No Idea Records’ bands. Or maybe if Lifetime was just as inspired by RVIVR? The recordings are tight and the band has talent, but the songs are constructed by elements that you’ve heard before. Your enjoyment of the music would more or less depend on if you think punk has gotten too slow these last few years. The songs hit hard and fast, and the musical changes are plentiful enough to entertain even the weariest of reviewers. Excellently performed, but borderline average songwriting. I’ll withhold full judgment until I hear an LP from these guys. Grade: B.
