Comeback Kid: Wake The Dead
1

Sound — 10
This band is faced-pace and intense hardcore at its absolute best. These guys make terrific use of their two guitarists with almost all of the guitar parts being two at once and rarely just one big riff; not that it doesn't stay heavy though. And of course its all topped of with arrangements that keep you up.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are heart-felt, aggressive and suit the music perfectly. As a matter of fact, in the song "Talk Is Cheap" you can find some great lyrics 'Your debts escalating/Whisper no regrets' and some not so good ones 'you're the sucker' but they are both sung or screamed with so much intensity and feeling that you can't help but enjoy it.

Overall Impression — 10
Since I haven't heard the first album, I couldn't tell you that this is better or worse. This CD is filled with great tunes ("False Idols Fall," "Wake The Dead," "Talk Is Cheap" and "The Trouble I Love" are the highlights) and each one filled with spectacular guitars, drums, bass and vocals. If this was stolen I would buy another two and keep one in a safe place so it wouldn't get stolen. That's what I can tell you.

    tool's great, so is comeback kid, but most kids who listen to comeback kid wouldn't really understand tool and probably vice versa.

    umm..straight edge isnt a genre of music..it is a lifestyle choice..there are bands that choose to sing about being straight edge..but that doesnt create a genre..usually these bands are hardcore or metalcore...and whether you guys like it or not..comeback kid are a hardcore band

    I'm straight Edge, and you're a dipshit. Comeback Kid is Hardcore. I'vee seen them with Terror and it was definately the most hardcore show I've ever been to, and I've seen Agnostic Front. haha

    lets not argue about genres. if you look at their myspace theres about 6 pictures of their favourite cds, which includes gorilla biscuits, good riddance, anthrax and nirvana so clearly its not all about hardcore but that is the majority of their influence. this is a good cd. turn it around is better, but i like this.

    it strange u shud say that. american hi-fi sound totally different to comeback kid. i luv this album. i totally think that the vocals are fine, it a bonus to their style and i like it coz its unique. i mean bane have a similar style, except the voice just puts me off.
