CRIME WAVE: Modern Lobotomies: EP

Decent punk rock from Houston. Mainly mid tempo and a growled voice (though not a hardcore bellow type thing). As much as I want to be dazzled by this, it falls short. Not terrible, but this lacks fire. A little more oomph could really help and send these songs over the edge. The title track, which is the slowest on here, is the best, and the one I go back and listen to often. “Jerry Falwell Is Dead” and “Houston Is Gonna Burn” are the other standouts of the five on here.
