FAR FROM FINISHED: Living in the Fallout: CD

There is so much going on here it’s hard to comprehend the final product. So Mark Lind from The Ducky Boys and his own solo career is the bass player, they toured with The Dropkick Murphys amongst some other fairly decent names, and the ingredients are here for a decent Boston punk band. But it’s so fucking polished I can barely stand it. It almost sounds like Sugarcult moved to New England. There’s potential here but they sanded all the character off it in the studio. What’s really weird is they insist on being labeled “hardcore,” which absolutely nothing about this record is.
