First sounds are punching right in ya face. It's already a really great record, i've heard it few times before, but it wasn't so comprehended. First song, wow, with some "oi" elements, like Sham69 or so, or i'm just too high. Fast, like Ramones on maximum, with lot's of classic punk sounds i really love. I've heard some Clash or Joe Strummer in the slow songs, it's cool, it's a new way to deal with classics, you can't be wrong, pub rock. Oh, i guess i need a beer. Guitar solos in between are fucking amazing. 3rd song is just great! oh, wow, there were some harmonica sounds. Texts are cool as well, sometimes funny, sometimes hard, sometimes they're really matching with me, they're great for what they play, speed kills haha. OK, i see where it's all coming from, they're from London. It explains many things right now. And yeah, come to Moscow, this is cool song.
The release is really catchy, i had a moment i was a little bit bored, but it was may be only half a song or so and then back with the attitude you just wanna dance with till the end of the record, so called pub rock. At least more than half of the songs are just fucking great with a really great ending. It's probably worth it and i'll take it to the list when i will think about tops of this year. I haven't heard their previous releases if they were some, i really should... ok it was their debut, thanks pitchfork...
I still don't know how to rate right, i've just made a stupid scale with categories and i'll try to do it with it. It's a secret scale no one will ever see, weedview, buuuh.
IT'S 9/10 WEEDS
