#GOALS: Self-titled: CD

May 23, 2018

Three-forths of a Circle Jerks lineup—Greg, Earl, and Lucky—put together a new “project” with a different singer so’s Greg can show the swell sound of his recording studio. Things do sound quite good, but the resulting songs—largely a rock feel with a bit o’ punk thrown in and largely innocuous lyrical matter—are at best okay and at worst kinda pointless in the way that one would expect from a band put together for the purpose stated. Call it bias or unreasonably high expectations, but considering the firepower responsible for the proceedings, one can easily, and rightly, expect a bit more than “okay” songs. –Jimmy Alvarado (DC Jam, dcjamrecords.com)
