DIVIDED, THE: World You’re Living In: LP

Raybo’s back with another doozy of a band, who’ve here released an appropriate doozy of an album. Bonecrusher comparisons are inevitable and understandable, but mixed in are echoes of classic Orange County punk rock and the more melodic wing of U.K. streetpunk—one well-written tune after the next stuffed with loud guitars, stinger leads, gruff-yet-tuneful vocals and an ace rhythm section. Another winner here from Hostage. –Jimmy Alvarado (Hostage)
