ENERGY: Race the Sun: 7”

Jan 06, 2009

To call this melodic would be an understatement. To call it hardcore would infer it’s hardcore. This sounds like a bad pop punk band trying to cover A.F.I. They cover Bobby Freeman’s “Do You Wanna Dance” in tribute to the Ramones’ 1977 version, but their take doesn’t hold a candle to either. With a lot of people hyping this band, the fact that it’s on Bridge Nine Records, and their show here in Tijuana coming up, I was psyched to get this in the mail. Unfortunately, as soon as the needle hit the clear purple vinyl, it all went downhill. Don’t believe the hype.
