DARK THOUGHTS: Self-titled: CS

“Is this the Ramones?” My partner doesn’t typically hang around during review time, but her assessment is not far off. Jim’s harmonies and the tight snap of the snare land the tunes squarely in the Forrest Hills bruddas’ territory. However, the guitar and bass, coupled with the short attention span song lengths, have enough chutzpah to walk the same line as Copyrights or Methadones’ bombast. Blue cassette and foldout lyrics/cover. Recommended. –Matt Seward (Get Better, getbetterreordsnh.limitedrun.com)
