GOLDBLADE: Strictly Hardcore: CD

Nov 21, 2006

A lot of people I know think these guys are the bee’s knees, and I will freely admit they aren’t without their charms—“Living Outside the Capital” and “16 Tons,” to name a couple, ain’t too shabby—but like U.S. Bombs, I can’t really see what all the fuss is about. For the most part, they sound like a Sham knockoff, albeit a serviceable one, without the politics and righteous anger, and I’m still too fueled by that anger to be impressed by what feels like a watered-down re-creation, no matter how deep the roots of those responsible run. It could be I’m totally obtuse and just not seeing the obvious, but frankly I just don’t get it and can think of so many more bands worth the hoopla.
