When California-based punk rockers CPR (full name Christian Punk Rock) originally released this three-track EP in 2018, they intimated that they weren't happy with the vocal balance and have therefore carried out a swiftly remixed re-release, with the same sleeve but the tracks in a different order. Whilst the vocals are now very much up front and in your face, it's still quite difficult to make out what front man Greg Hill (aka Jet Wilson) is actually saying thanks to his yelled delivery and the manic cacophony of all that's going on behind him. As far as can be made out, the opener "Fire The Fire" is a call to arms whilst the similarly-themed "Rally The Troops" alludes to matters of spiritual warfare. If you're looking for musical subtlety, I doubt whether you'd be investigating Californian punk rock anyway. But if you're a punk rocker, young or old, and want something with the ferocious drive of the genre, this will be worth checking out.

Thanks for the review! The song “Fire the Fire” is a cry for help for those that are struggling with depression and suicide:
FIRE THE FIRE
V1: you've been told that you're no good, you haven't got a chance.
And all the rest they got it made, in every circumstance.
Perfect life, and perfect face, and happy all the time.
Don't listen to the voices, don't listen to the lies .

Chorus:
Fire the fire...that burns against the truth.
Fire the fire...thats coming after you.
Fire the fire...And never doubt you can, And never say never again

V2 Man it's getting hot in here,
I'm looking for relief.
open up a window, that will
help me to believe,
I know the wall that's in your face, there's help to make it through. So find yourself someone, you don't stop until you do!!!
