This is what it sounds like to me: Western Addiction sounds like Good Riddance doing Bl'ast doing Black Flag. It's straight-forward, no frills punk that easily goes back to the roots of early hardcore. Intensive with heavy riffs and a solid music base, this band is easily likable on first listen. I like that it feels like their songs aren't sugar coated and that they don't seem to be faking it. Their anger and energy seem genuine with songs not clocking in a little over two minutes and no filler to be heard. I didn't feel like I needed to hit the fast forward button. If the band stays together and with a few LPs under their belt, they will be just as regarded as the other bands on their label.
