TIGER TANK: Self-titled: LP

The exact meeting point of Black Flag and Chixdiggit. Wording this critique is difficult because my overall feelings are neutral, but the things keeping me from liking this record are negatives. What I’m hearing is some okay-to-good pop punk mixed with a small spattering of kind of boring psych rock. If I wasn’t a “professional” reviewer, I would have turned the record off half way through, almost specifically because of the song “The Blob.” The good parts of the record sound like C-Tier Lookout Records bands, and that’s all right. If that’s a flavor you’re desperately missing, give a chance. But that’s no strong recommendation on my part. –Bryan Static (Burger, burgerrecords.com)
