GREAT REDNECK HOPE, THE: ‘Splosion!: CD

First of all, this disc has some of the best song titles I’ve ever seen. Sure, it falls along the lines of more chaotic hardcore like Men’s Recovery Project, The Locust, The Blood Brothers, Melt-Banana and even some death metal at times, but the more I listen to this, the more it grows on me. Sure, maybe they’re trying to be extreme, but isn’t that a better option than, as so many other bands seem to strive for, sucking? At least this elicits some reaction other than boredom. And, quite honestly, it’s really pretty fucking good.
