Ain’t got a clue as to their opinions on the rules of smokin’ and drinkin’, and frankly I don’t really care to know, but twenty-two years ago these guys would’ve been hot shit with all the straight edge kids. Seriously, they have that mid-‘80s posi-youth sound pat, plus a production quality at their disposal that any of those bands back then would’ve killed for. Even today, what they’re puttin’ down is pretty impressive, especially considering they’re not pushing the same puritanical lyrics those earlier bands were so obsessed with.
