RATIONAL ANIMALS: Bock Rock Parade: LP

I wasn’t expecting much from a record with its band members standing in the snow with a goat in front of them but, goddamn, I’m impressed! Rational Animals sound like the chain-shackled, basement born and bred, bastard-in-love-child of The Process of Weeding Out-era Black Flag and Nirvana’s less commercially appealing songs off Incesticide. Fans of Slices and Middle America are in for a treat.
