TWENTY TO ONE: Suburban Battlecry: 7"

Jul 13, 2007

Fairly traditional sounding sXe hardcore that conjures up images of angry young men in hooded sweatshirts suspended in mid-air gymnastics poses, their faces grimacing with conviction. Twenty To One is ebullient and self-righteous and they rip it up damn well, drug-free or not. The singer even sounds a bit like GG Allin in spots, which, in the context of a straightedge band, makes me feel warm and good all over. Nothing ground-breaking here but, as Yogi Berra might say, if you like this kind of stuff, you’re gonna like this.
