RIFU: Bomb for Food, Mines for Freedom: CD

Thumbs Down: Packaging. I hate when labels send CDR’s with no packaging with some bio sheet. Makes it even harder for a reviewer to even listen to it. The intro track was good giving you a feeling like something ominous was coming. Second track, “Sold Out World,” had that Tragedy, From Ashes Rise sound going. A little bit of screamo vocals added. I was thinking cool, good song. But afterwards, things started going downhill for me. That’s where the screamo vocals would be in every song and even more prominent. That got irritating real quick. Fast forward. More good songs, but the vocal delivery thing has become overdone for me. MTV kids might dig that stuff, but this old fart doesn’t.
