RUINER: Prepare to Be Let Down: LP

May 26, 2008

The problem with being a music nut is that the more you hear, the harder and harder it gets for something new to make you smile. If I had heard this band way back when, I may have been crazy about them. Now, I’ve heard so much hardcore that sounds just like theirs that I can’t really get that jazzed about it. From the sound of them, I can guess that they’re crazy in a live setting, which is something I never get sick of. If only they had put just a touch more of the crazy into their recording, maybe I would have been jumping off the walls.
