BROKEN LINE, A: Rat Beach: CD

For about twenty seconds I thought this was decent-sounding beach punk, then for the rest of the first song I thought it might be “just okay” beach punk. After that I just couldn’t handle it. I was simultaneously bored by the music and annoyed by the lyrics. Their bio states “…lyrics that reflect the battle for faith in a difficult world.” Ah, there it is. Evangelicore. No thanks. –Ty Stranglehold (Thumper Punk, thumperpunkrecords.com)
