Sound — 10
Social D. kicks ass. Their songs are great, and very well thought up. Mike Ness is the only original member now, but nowadays they're still pretty good. All the albums are similar in a way, and this one has great sound. The guitar solos in the intro of most songs are awesome. Mike's a great guitarist, one of the only punk rockers left.
Lyrics — 8
Some of the lyrics are kind of lame, like the song So Far Away. It's an excellent song - great vocals and sound. But the lyrics are kind of annoying after "so far away, so far away, so far away..." it keeps going on. But Story Of My Life and Ball And Chain are two of the greatest songs I've ever heard.
Overall Impression — 10
Social Distortion is my favorite band. And they haven't killed their name, like some have. Some older bands that are left have completely different members and their new music sucks. Social D has newer members, but they still are the kick ass band they always were. If I lost this CD or if it were stolen, I'd buy it again. Definitely.
