I OBJECT: Teaching Revenge: CD

Jul 07, 2006

Female fronted female ‘80s-style hardcore, heavy on the messages. I’m guessing they’re coming from a vegan, straight-edge, anti-establishment stance, which is all well and good. I just have never been into being preached to. I’m from the camp that if you’re using your songs to get a message across, that’s fine. If you have to write an explanation as long as the song to explain that message (or if live you give an introduction the length of the song), then you’re really not using that song as a tool for the message. If you want to stand on a soapbox and preach, go ahead, I’ll walk by. If you put it in a song and let it stand on its own merits as such, I’ll probably listen.
