A few notes
Didn't hear too much prior to this release. Wasn't actually aware the band was doing much. I really got into these guys alot back when they we're peaking in the late 80's. Well, they may have been a bit quiet, but this new album is anything but quiet. After some slow down in tempo with some of the releases of the early 90's, the band really kicked it up a notch and returned to that fast and furious music they were known for. This album even has a bit of the Infectious Grooves sound here and there.
Self Destruct-Brilliant opener that kicks it in gear in a hurry. Fast classic ST sound with a new flair.
Su Casa es mi Casa-Bit of the Infectious Grooves sound here. A bit funky and very heavy.
Free your soul...and save my mind-Like the sound on this one. Interesting guitar sound and cool funk bass lines.
Pop Songs-Very humorous tune that rages. Lyrical content about these ridculous boy and girl bands not to mention the rap nonsense.
Children of the Bored-Good attitude and crunch. Very catchy song structure.
Got Mutation-Check out the bass here. More funky stuff in the I.F. vein.
Home-Very light track. The alien of the album. Very smooth. Kind of moody.
If you were not aware of this album, you are definitely in for a treat. The ST guys are still in solid form and are releasing music that will appeal to their core of fans as well as others. When I heard this band was on hiatus, I was concerned because of the impact these guys have had on both the Punk and Metal genres. You hate to lose a band of this magnitude in either genre. This disc is defintely worth spinning.... many times. Do check it out!
