Rock Against Bush, Vol. 1 is a compilation of some of the best punk bands in music today. Just look at the line-up of: Alkaline Trio, Strung Out, Strike Anywhere, Pennywise, Offspring, Anti-Flag, and NOFX, and you'll know what I mean. They all came together to make a comp about the dangerous, deadly, and destructive policies of George W. Bush and his administration, and more power to them! It's good that some people really know what's going on.
Lyrics — 9
Since this is a comp album, it's difficult to comment on all the lyrics, but suffice it to say that the lyrics are, for the most part, well-written and well sung. They fit with the music perfectly. Since this is a political album, and the lyrics are generally political, they work great together.
Overall Impression — 9
It's a very good album, better than Vol. 2 I would say, and it is a must for any punk comp collector, or any Bush-hater. Or both. If lost, I would definitely buy it again. It comes with an awesome DVD as well, so expect a DVD review from me sometime soon.
