The Adicts: Songs Of Praise

Sound — 8
The Adicts were a big part of punk development, alongside Ramones and Sex Pistols. The sound is all about craziness, it's the the mad songs in it that make it stand out. While not extremely innovative it's still refreshing to listen to compared to music nowadays. Their appearance is very eyecatching, particularly Monkey, the vocalist. All steampunk and clockwork orange, it was very unique at the time. The band consists of: Keith "Monkey" Warrens - vocalist Mel "Spider" Ellis - Guitar Micheal "Kid Dee" Davidson - Drums John "Scruff" Ellis - Guitar Dan Gratzani - Violin, Piano.

Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are easy going fun and light hearted, not with a lot of meaning other than to have a bit of a laugh, but they blend in well with the guitars and so but the songs have uncomfortable lyrics not like bad lyrics or dirty ones but just that they can make you a tad uncomfortable at times but overall is happy go lucky and light hearted.

Overall Impression — 8
Overall a very good album I would recommend this to punk enthusiasts and indie lovers alike and while it doesn't match up to other it albums like Ramones and Sex Pistols. It's still a great album with some corkers such as "Viva La Revolution" and you will be entertained so you owe it to yourself to buy this.
