Anti-Flag is pretty much power chords and choppy solos in other albums but in this sweet piece of cd, the chords are tight and the solos are more common and sweeter (not only guitar, but the bass solo in Mind The G.A.T.T. is to die for.) Tom Morello (guitarist for Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) was the producer of this album and is one of the reasons for a new sense of diversity in this album.
Lyrics — 8
Some say that this is the same old lyrics for the new album but quite frankly, they're only 1/4 right. Yeeeeeeeees, they do sing the same stuff but there is plenty o' new stuff. One of the main focuses is on big business stopping rights and progress in America. Not your bag? We have plenty of cracks at Bush (he deserves it).
Overall Impression — 10
If you have listened to an Anti-Flag album before, you might've noticed the brashness of their early albums and the pleading for peace of their latest album, but this one is an undelicate mix of a kick in the face and wanting peace. The solos are a punch in the mouth and the mixture of old and new is saweet.
