SHOT BAKER: Take Control: CD

Taking their influences and putting them in a blender, the Baker boys come up with a smooth vanilla shake on their second full length. Heartfelt lyrics, tight riffage, and overall slick tuneage makes picking this one up a virtual no-brainer. “Falling Apart” and “All Paths Lead to Nowhere” are anthems, but each song will stay with you for awhile. “Lost Today”’s intro even reminds me of vintage Dag Nasty. Buy this. It is your destiny.
