FIGHTBALL: The Hyperbole of a Dead Man: CD

This disc opened up with an intro featuring some chunky, rockin’ guitar not unlike something out of a Riverboat Gamblers’ song. I got excited. Then the first song kicked in, and Fightball sounds a lot like a German version of Face To Face singing in English. I got let down. Not that this is all that bad, it’s just I got wound up for something else. Well, that little trumpet thing that may have been played on a synth was pretty bad. All in all, I’ve heard way worse attempts at this style. If you’re down with the early ‘90s Fat Wreck Chords sound, you might wanna give these guys a go.
