MATCHES, THE: Decomposer: CD

I’m sure Epitaph will send someone over to my house to smash a baseball bat through my car windshield, but this will be the second time I will have to send a new record by this label down the toilet. Too many producers’ hands in the till make this an uneven sounding affair. Plus the lyrics are truly horrible. And from the liner notes it seems that their manager co-writes the majority of the tunes. Reminds me of when that creepy doctor was writing a lot of Brian Wilson’s songs a few years back. These results are similar. I’ll be waiting for something new that does not sound like The Fall Out Killers Boys.
