Although calling themselves a punk rock band this Philadelphia unit, on this release at least, sound more like a bad bar band trying to do a retro thing. Shambolic arrangements, awful bawled vocals and a lack of focus make this one of the weakest releases that the normally reliable Facedown Records ever put out. It's taken Cross Rhythms nearly two years to note this release's existence. Hope nobody's been holding their breath.

I can't believe this got such a poor rating. For all punk/hardcore fans this is an amazing album, I've had it on constantly for the last couple of days.

Wish I could've seen them live!

whoever reviewed this album has NO CLUE what good music is. This is one of the only releases Facedown put out that I like simply because ONE-21 was doing something drasticly differant than everyone else. Notice the lack of cliche poetic lyrics, self-indulgent breakdowns every five seconds, nautical star tattoos, and dyed black haircuts.
