EJECTOR SEATS, THE: High Hopes, Low Expectations…: LP

Apr 29, 2016

This is the third Ejector Seats LP that I’ve reviewed for Razorcake, and I’m loving it. They play a semi-novel mix of pop and garage, with a hint of early ‘80s hardcore thrown in for good measure. The packaging is glorious, including a gatefold sleeve. The Ejector Seats vocals got angrier over time, although there are moments of the calmer, gentler stylings from their early work. I had high hopes and high expectations for High Hopes, Low Expectations. The record didn’t disappoint. Both fans of Ejector Seats and newcomers will love the grabby, energetic talent on display.
