ONE STEP SHIFT: Chemical Burn: 7”

May 21, 2003

I’m at odds on this one. At times, I like it and at other times, I want to kick my own ass for liking it. When they slow down, it’s really soggy mathy rock that’s less intimidating than a second grader with bad eyesight. When it speeds up, like landscape seen from an accelerating car, all the angles seem to add up and get interesting, in a Jawbox, Nomeansno smartguy punk rock sort of way. Not abysmal, not an emo turd, but not fully endorsed, either.
