Lyrically, this is a bit better with more pointed salvos at the power structure than I remember previous discs being, but ultimately their take on punk seems more driven by adhering to a template than really pushing forward from the starting gate, which leaves their efforts sounding a bit hollow and thin on righteous anger about what they’re going on about. Gotta say, though, I’ve gone from dismissal with extreme prejudice to a grudging respect for ’em, which means either I’m slowly softening through repeated exposure, or they’re getting a wee bit better with each release.
