This record comes in a full color, embossed cover. It has full color labels on its white vinyl, which has a black dust sleeve. Accompanying all this is a LP-sized glossy insert and a bit of shrinkwrap to insure that it all stays in place. Given these things along with the title, I would assume that cognitive dissonance is easily assuaged in the HS camp. Anyhow, these guys make that poppy street punk oi stuff that probably wouldn’t have come out before Rancid’s Wolves. The sound is tolerable while the lyrics are the usual weak crap that is all too safe for this type of music, never straying far from working, drinking, and rioting. I don’t get it, and I don’t think that there is much there to get.
