SPARK, THE: Nobody’s Laughing: LP

Mar 14, 2007

Fast hardcore, indeed. This isn’t anything ground breaking, just balls-out, ragin’ hardcore, but this band is pretty far ahead of the game when it comes to their lyrics. This may not be the best example, but I really like this line, “You kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong!” Bam! You don’t need a thesaurus to be taken seriously. This album is a perfect example of smart people writing in a very basic, understandable way. I find that commendable and comfortable. Anyways, I guess this band has broken up and this was their last recording, so nab it before it’s tucked away in all your enemies’ record collections.
