I love the live photo album cover. Slaves up the intensity right from the start, merging what is essentially 70s punk with the effect of an energy drink. And when I see that the band is only two people I am somewhat speechless. 'Cease Fire' is absolutely flat out and I don't think I could have dealt with a whole album on the same note. Fortunately the songs calm down from there on, if only slightly. Things pan out a bit but then the excellent 'She Grew Old' picks it back up. A very good punk album.
