Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-11-29
Old school hardcore punk. Every song clocks in at about 1 minute, so what they hey, how much of your show will it take to drop a track in. This is old school hardcore with some remixes thrown in that take you by surprise. A mix of releases that vary in production. Its just good. No pandering, no pussy shit. Not exactly “old school” in a retro manner, just good rockin stuff. No super fast stuff. But the weirder songs stick out and are truly awesome

1) brief rocker 2) 2/4 thrasher 3) old school 2/4 hardcore near gallop 4) old school rocker 5) a remix that has a fucked up quality that makes it contemporary and strange
6) FCCs
7) good old school punk
8) rip rocking upbeat that’s pop punk by my definition, think CH3, not nu crap
9) another driving epic hardcore song
10) “I wanna die”, kinda cliché but what the hell, it’s a good message for the youth
11) FCCs
12) 2/4 pissed off punk
13) FCCs
14) rockin hardcore
15) totally different production, totally bizarre as in something on Load or Death Bomb Arc records, this is the shit
16) “simple” song, life aint cool
17) almost poppy feel about the strumming, I mean of course compared to rest
18) bigger production, scathing ripping
19) heavy intro goes straight into great 2/4 gallloping ripping, very early 80’s hardcore, Bad Religion
20) typical old school hardcore feel, grabs you by the poo poo, don’ it?
21) healthy guitar tone, then onslaught style hardcore, smacks of Die Kreuzen before they went “metal”
22) pizza song, distorto vocals over rip rocking guitar that would fit in with garagy bands like Holly Golighly or anything on Estrus records
23) FCC
24) onslaught, rip rocking me a new asshole like the one I have isn’t bleeding enough already, thanks guys
25) longest track at 2:04 but I like it cuz its cohesive and fucked up and roaring and makes my head feel good
