Great album cover and all but still i can't see whats so fantastic about this band. Their lyrics are still childish at most (with some exeptions like the song Trust), and Mike still sings the songs adding that "extra thing" in the end of every verse. I dont know who told him this was a great idea and why he does it. Is it to put a personal touch on their sound or an attempt to sound more melodic? To me it just sounds stupid and annoying.
Enough trashtalking about the band (i dont mean no harm just being honest) since i actually enjoy a couple of the songs on the cd.
Smash 'em is a good antifacist song with a great chorus sadly falls short thanks to stupid lyrics like "sex and booze thats what we live for/you talked some shit so we kicked down the door". Lyrics dont have to rhyme to be good and nursery rhymes can NEVER be good.
Both American skins and Old glory are two good patriotic songs but best of all songs is is Trust. A truly great song that raises the all over grade by one point.
