Narcoleptic Youth have managed to cement a solid following over the years and this full length is chock full of reasons why. Wielding a sound that takes equally from the past and present, theirs is a sound with a broad appeal—hints of oi’s anthemic qualities married to “classic” Southern California hardcore and backyard thrash, driving rhythms, song structures a bit more complex than they may seem at first blush, and a sagacious bent to lyrics that often approach their subject matter with liberal doses of sarcasm and humor. I’ve been a fan since I first stumbled across “Barbi in Bondage” and this only reinforces that.
