This is another one of those one-sided splits. The Frozen Teens play stripped-down punk rock you’ve heard a dozen times before by a dozen different bands— nothing to get excited about. Street Legal, on the other hand, is awesome hardcore punk with great hooks and powerful female vocals. The catchy riffs and epic amounts of guitar wankery crammed into each of the two songs here will not only get you rocking out but will give you a serious case of musical talent envy. The only disappointment with the Street Legal side of the split was how short it was. Two songs were not enough for me to enjoy the radness of this band. These ladies and gentlemen clearly know how to rock, and an EP (or LP) of them on their own can’t come soon enough.
