Sound: For an album recorded and produced by themselves, this sounds incredible. Part of getampeds punk philosphy comes from this album being recorded in their own studio and having it put out on their own record label. The melodies are enough to make any major label artist jealous, and mysically swithes between agressive riffs and slower, more poetic moments. // 10

Lyrics: Lyrically, Getamped are everything thats missing from modern music. Rather than just being like your average pop-punk band, they actually give a shit and decide to sing about stuff that matters, rather than just getting dumped again. My favourite song, Celebrity, asks why we worship false idols, who are famous for no reason, and why the media continues to obsess over every worthless thing that they do. Other songs observe that we only care about something when it becomes personal (Down To Us) and the feeling of being left behind (Want To Belong). // 10

Overall Impression: It's hard to pin getampeds style down, because their perspective is so different to that of other artists. Knowing that this sound is a culmination of three guys hard, dedicated work, it's difficult not to be impressed. Rather than preach about how punk they are, Getamped actually do something about it. Phoney Society generally sums up the mood of all 13 tracks, showing that they band actually put thought into their approach. This is not only something missing from music, but also a great british talanted band, who also kill live. // 10
