ROTTEN, THE: Enemy of the State: CD

This is everything I should like in a punk band: repeated choruses sung with a snotty voice, power chords, and a band named after decay, but something’s not right here. The production is extremely pristine. They’ve got the typical ode to hating everything with the song “No Good At All,” but something about the calculated list of cops, politicians, and hippies just makes the tune typical. By the end of listening to this CD, I’m still left deciding if it’s good or not while no guitar hooks or vocal hooks are left stuck in my head. –N.L. Dewart
