GRADE 2: Break the Routine: LP

This is a reasonable load of “street punk”-inspired songs. Break the Routine is the band’s second album. I’d like to hear the first album. This one suffers from being a little bit too well recorded for my taste. I’d like to hear it dirtied up. But the vocals and guitar chord intervals are reminiscent of The Business’s best early albums. It’s worth a listen for fans thereof. They’re obviously committed. –Billups Allen (Pirates Press)
