Dillinger Four is my favorite band, so it’s going to be impossible for me to review this one without the bias of history and familiarity. I think most people reading this have heard at least one of their albums, though, so we’re all in the same boat…right? Okay. This time, they deliver something a little thinner and less immediate than their past albums, but it is still very good stuff. The tracks are comfortable and familiar without sounding recycled, and while you don’t the soul-pummeling beatdown that you did with Versus God, you still get an enjoyable record with some amazing songs. We’re all getting older, including Dillinger Four, and it seems they’re aging pretty damned well.
