RIGHT IDEA: Right Way: 7” EP

May 27, 2011


This little platter offers up eight tracks of straight-up hardcore from Cleveland, Ohio’s Right Idea. Whether or not straight edge is a “right idea” or not may be open for debate, but whether these guys blaze or not isn’t. I’m usually a little wary of bands that wear their personal politics on their sleeves in such a manner but was pleasantly surprised when the needle hit the vinyl. Don’t get me wrong, they do their fair share of youth crew style sing-alongs with pit-friendly thrash tempos, but they manage to do so in a manner that isn’t too preachy or dogmatic. –
