C.O.P.: Dedicated Cop: EP

This is one of those records that’s not bad, but it’s not exactly all that good either. Just okay really. C.O.P. play standard hardcore punk influenced by the ‘80s, but are not a retro rehash. The songs are speedy and well played. But there’s no real spark or energy that will pull the listener in. I’ve played this record quite a bit, listening for something, anything, to standout. Despite all the repeated plays, not one song was memorable.
