S.L.I.P.: Slippy When Wet: LP

The foundation is well-played hardcore with enough creativity in the chord changes and song structures that make this above the pack. Their singer sells the whole package, though, with vocals that evince echoes of both early Jack Brewer—and John Stabb at his most sarcastically obnoxious—and add a bit of a lighter tone to the proceedings. This could’ve easily gone south at any point, but they pull it off and maintain the quality over a full-length. –Jimmy Alvarado (Sorry State)
