DESPISED, THE: Punk, It’s Not for Rich Kids Anymore: CD

Mar 13, 2007

Man, the old press sheet says Punk, It’s Not for Rich Kids Anymore is a concept album that the band has been working on for six years! That’s dedication, folks. And if that concept is sucking, they’ve hit the mark. It’s that oh-so-creative punk that’s played at a breakneck pace with never a breakdown in sight—unless it’s for one of those tuneless guitar solo wank-a-ramas—coupled with those awesome vocals that go “Blah blah blah, b b b-blah” in every single, god-forsaken track. I was hoping Killroy would eventually show his face and rub out all the Mr. Robotos, but, much to my dismay, I don’t see him or Dennis De Young. Domo arigato, Despised, for the suck opera. The only thing I can say is that the rich kids can keep this one.
