PEARS: Green Star: LP

Pears have refined their songwriting, melding their fast hardcore and melodic skate punk parts into something insanely high energy and stop-on-a-dime tight. It’s too spazzy for my taste, but if the idea of playing an old Propagandhi LP on 45 appeals to you, you’re gonna wanna snap this one up. –Chris Terry (Fat, fatwreck.com)
