KIDS ON FIRE: Cassette

Competent but pretty run of the mill, snotty, mid-tempo hardcore stuff that attacks scenesterism, the daily grind, cops, etc. Nothing wincingly bad, nothing jaw-droppingly good. Hate to bag on a band that’s so… inoffensive, as they know what they’re doing, but there’s just nothing to separate this cassette from the hundreds or thousands of bands out there doing the exact same thing.
