TOSSPINTS, THE: The Privateer: CD

Listening to their album The Privateer, I imagine that The Tosspints are a fucking riot to see live. Sadly, this feeling does not translate to the music coming out of my headphones. The songs are written with interesting, pirate punk premises, there are fun harmonies and backing vocals, and lead guitarist Don Zuzula is a motherfuckin’ shredder. The whole thing, however—the sum of the parts—just does not come together for me. I would still go see them live, if they would have me.
