DILLINGER FOUR: Civil War: CD

Six years in the making, this is one of D4’s best albums. They continue their lyrical onslaught of American culture with honest, fatalistic lyrics matched to galloping guitar rhythms and solid drum work. Some of my favorites are “Minimum Wage is a Gateway Drug,” “The Classical Arrangement,” and “A Pyre Laid for Image and Frame.” Inspirational, comforting, kick-ass tunes. Recommended.
