Power pop from Louisiana with soaring southern-fried guitar melodies and gruff vocals. I regularly order blindly from Dirtnap due to their track record being rather spot on with their releases these past two or three years. This album, however, just didn’t quite tickle my ears the way I was hoping it would. There are two guitarists on this record although I can’t help but feel like the guitar tracks were laid down pretty thin. If you’re already a fan, however, you’ll be delighted to know that this CD also includes the tracks from their Painted White album as well as their EP on Hozac at no extra cost! Noteworthy fact: MM’s drummer Aaron Hill was chosen to replace the dearly departed Joey LaCaze in the mighty Eyehategod.
