GOOD RIDDANCE/KILL YOUR IDOLS: Split: CD EP

Good Riddance: A band I normally loathe clocks in with some surprisingly good tunes. They’ve apparently toned down the “pop” quotient of their music and kicked up the “core” a notch, giving what usually sounded like watered down radio-friendly crap a good kick in the ass. Nice work. Kill Your Idols: Three pretty good tracks from a hardcore band I’d only heard of before. All tracks by both bands are exclusive to this release, so if you’re a fan, you might wanna pick this up
