Sound — 9
A Calculated Use of Sound is the band's first CD and what a album. The sound is punk/metal and has great drum lines. The band was only 17 when they made this and you can tell by Rody's high pitched vocals and some of his voice cracks. This album is obiously political charged as they call out Bill Clinton, homophobic people and many other american problems. One problem, they're Canadians.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are very complex and you think the song writer is a genius with some lines like "Yes I want to topple the system, held in place by finacial greed, wealth is made by ownership, social hierchy", "Bombings won't justify bombings, death will not justify death, death itselfs justifies nuthing, nothing will come of it" and finally "Terrorism, as defined by official US documents as a calculated use of violence, or threat of violence, to attain goals that are political religeous or ideologicial in state."
Overall Impression — 10
Overall this CD (I think) is better that Kezia because it shows of their punk roots and their political lyrics. My favorite songs are Fear and loathing in laramie, These colours don't run & by far my favorite PTH song ever, Red Stars Over The Battle Of Cowshed.
