DETOURNEMENT: Awaken with Millions from One Heart: 11” heart-shaped surface, 7” playing surface

May 04, 2010

I question the format size because the actual playing surface is that of a 7”, the actual size of the red, heart-shaped vinyl is eleven inches. But this record does not need a collectability gimmick, in my opinion. The anti-capitalistic, working-class communisto punk rocks really well. Good, politically-oriented, blistering punk rock that touches primal nerves and makes you want to smash the state. However, the mix sucks. The record sounds like it was recorded on a two-track through a towel. Despite that, however, this is a really solid record and I enjoyed every second of it.
