MANIFESTO JUKEBOX: Strain: CD

What happened? The last record I heard from this band I really liked. But this, this is some tired-ass jangly post-punk with real sassy vocals. Oh god how I despise sassy vocals. I guess you can forgive a little because these guys are from Scandinavia and maybe they don’t get that certain enunciations of English come across sounding sassy, but still, what happened? You know how you’ll hear a song sometimes and it just sounds like a bunch of intros and transitions and fills with no actual song? Every song on this record sounds like that. Sorry to give this a bad review cause I know these dudes are cool guys and stuff, but hey, sometimes the truth hurts.
