TIM TIMEBOMB: High Noon in a Dark Blue Sea: CD

May 21, 2014

Culling the quality material from the considerable chaff of Tim Armstrong’s recent “a song a day for a year” project, High Noon in a Dark Blue Sea is actually a decent grouping of a dozen songs. The dude is clearly a polarizing figure, and quite justifiably, but if we’re just looking at things from a purely musical perspective, it’s clear that he can still pen a decent punk song every once in a while. Contains a handful of originals (which are definitely the stronger work here) and some covers by Toy Dolls, Bad Religion, Psychotic Pineapple, and The Jam. Again, not a jaw dropper by any measure, but there are some good songs here.
