GETBACK, THE: Halfway Home: CD

May 27, 2011

This album is a strange breed. There’s a bit of Scared Of Chaka coming through. A bit of mid-’80s Social Distortion, and some of that mid-’90s Muffs songwriting and drumming style. It’d be kind of like if Mike Wiebe of Riverboat Gamblers fronted a moodier and pop punkier Toys That Kill. It’s better than you’d think, even if it seems a bit bipolar. It’s got soul, harmony, and pure punk spirit.
