DOA: Northern Avenger: CD

On the down side, those who are waiting for Something Better Change Part 2 will be sorely disappointed. On the up side, the ska that marred its predecessor is kept to a minimum and the overall songwriting here is more consistent and now than many of their other releases this decade. Still a wee bit perplexed on why they cover Credence’s “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” but, on the whole, this ain’t as bad as I feared it was gonna be.
