GOOD RIDDANCE: Peace in Our Time: LP

Peace in Our Time is Good Riddance’s first album in nine years and it doesn’t sound like they have lost—or ever plan on losing—a single step. This album is full of fast and tough but thoughtful, wonderfully written pop punk jams. They come one after another with little time to catch your breathe in between. The guitars, drums, and harmonies build a raging wave of sound behind Russ Rankin’s lyrics, sung from the whole of his body, guts, bones, and clenched fists. Well done, GR.   –John Mule (Fat)
