Punchy, hard-working punk rock that stakes out its place in melodic territory but manages to cover a lot of ground as it does so. At times I'm reminded of the Observers, at others Social Distortion at their most scuff-knuckled and elsewhere the Misfits (particularly the sultry Glenn Danzig yodels of 'Punch The Clock'). While such variegated comparisons might suggest a slight lack of cohesion it all works out pretty well in the end, marking this as one for fans of the bands already mentioned or European lesser-knowns like Smalltown, Manifesto Jukebox and Wasted.
