Blistering return from these punk rock veterans, now with added firepower from Erik Denno (ex-Kerosene 454). This is a varied release, with acoustic interludes tempering the harsher passages. Bondi and Robbins trade off vocals and songwriting efforts, and the end results are stellar. And if you haven’t ever heard Zentek play drums—you’re in for a treat. The man kicks serious ass on the skins. “Bush Is Brezhnev” is definitely the most rocking Bondi composition here. ‘The Loyal Opposition” is the best Robbins pen to paper on this one. But all the songs are vicious here; it just depends what mind frame you are in. When your eardrums have receded into your skull, play “Blue Fade Grey,” a mellow tune from Robbins that will make you think as it lulls you to sleep.
