OBSESSORS, THE: Living Under the Power Lines: CD

I love generic ‘77 punk. I had hopes for this CD because it has classic-looking, neon punk artwork and the band’s name starts with a “The.” Unfortunately, there is not much else going on. The pace from song to song almost never changes and the vocals are mechanical. There are no hooks and when the songs do slow down, they just drag. There are interesting sci-fi style titles that get my hopes up, but the songs drag on too long to carry the more interesting concepts.
