Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-04-07
Local (San Jose), melodic punk some new wave-y keyboards. Great songwriting throughout and tons of amazing female & male vocal harmonies. Lyrics cover everything from SUVs, toxic waste, religion to personal issues. Think: X, Lost Sounds, Manda & The Marbles, Red #9. Hugely recommended.

((((1)))) Mid-paced punk, fantastic vocals. A good stab at the drivers of Shitty Ugly Vehicles. Keyboard are a little tinny but that’s a minor issue.
(((((2))))) Fast-ish tight, energetic punk awesomeness.
(((((3))))) As if X released a single with keyboards. Very addictive and utterly fantastic!
(((((4)))) Great riffs mixed really well with the keyboards. Ridiculously catchy.
((((5)))) Spikey, robotic dealing with our “brave new world”, repetitive & basic but totally fun.
(((((6))))) Fast, melodic punk, a lot like the old S.J. band Red #9. Great stuff.
(((((7))))) Even faster & totally direct, punk as fuck.
((((8)))) (FCC “Shit” sung three times) Anti-war number with a tough riff & stellar vocals.
((((9)))) Wailing punk n’ roll with Amie & co.’s infectous vocals.
((((10)))) Speedy anti-war/anti-jock sentiment. A little too much chorus but otherwise killer. “Slap a ribbon magnet/round the old oak tree/maybe he’ll be home soon/let’s not wait to see”
(((((11))))) Great straight ahead poppy keyboard/vocal laden break up song.
((((12)))) Bouncy, melodic with more nice vocals and chord changes. “The truest words are left unspoken”.
(((((13))))) Rippin’ Ramones-y riff with fast & fun new wave/punky number about zombies.
(((((((14))))))) Incredible roarin’ punk rawk. Like a varation on Turbonegro’s “Salior Man” except it’s about a pirate girl & her man (and not svelte Norwegian Navy guys)
((((15)))) Nice pop-punk flow. Even after multiple listens you keep thinking she’s gonna say “You’re my imaginary friend”. “Top Brownian” either way.
(((((16)))))) Intense, pointed & funny attack on religion.
(((17))) Pretty silly but fun take on the school kids cheer by way of o “Gabba Gabba Hey”.
