HI-STANDARD: Love Is a Battlefield: CDEP

Oct 29, 2001

I was very scared when I saw this because I thought I was going to have to listen to a cover of that terrible Pat Benetar song. To my relief, it wasn’t on this disc. Hi-Standard is what I like to describe as a Fat Wreck band with the typical Fat Wreck sound. You all know what I’m talking about. Thank goodness they are starting to change that. However, Hi-Standard is not. Very Fat pop punk here. Not bad, but not good either. Kinda okay for background music. Why does everyone insist on covering “Can’t Help Falling in Love”? Jesus Christ!
