This band have improved immeasurably since their first recording 'Happy Go Loser' back in 1999 and on this new offering over four cuts all with the swagger and snarl of punk but with an edgier, tighter production even bringing in some rapcore and new ska elements on the too-brief "Skanctify". I loved the screaming vocal on "Puppet Show" while the title track would be a hit if it got Radio One exposure. With the US underground awash with Christian punk posturers it's great to hear the Brits, who birthed those frantic pogoing rhythms in the first place, can do it far better than most Californian wannabes.
