Along with Against All Authority, Anti-Flag stands as one of the most unapologetically political (and meaningful) bands since the Dead Kennedys split in 1987. This album, in line with earlier work like "Seattle Was a Riot" and "Die for the Government," brilliantly showcases the band's powerful lyrics and bat-outta-hell guitars. Justin Sane's perfect punk rock vocals break into your mind and, with the help of the included lyric sheet, fill it with the truth. In response to Joseph Schulze's review, which relentlessly berated this album, I would like to say that Anti-Flag have NOT changed their position as far as their political views are concerned. They've always been anti-war...in fact, their anti-government stance WAS, at the same time, an anti-war stance. "Die for the Government," for example, was a very powerful anti-war song which pointed an uncompromising finger at the U.S. government for killing off its own people for profit. This is directly in line with the tracks on this album, including the brilliant title track..."we're looking to start a new army...that's too smart to fight, too smart to die...we're looking to start a new army...too smart to fight, too smart to kill for you"...their political stance has remained steadfast throughout their career, and always will. And Anti-Flag will NEVER become an emo band...listen to "Indie ..., Hardline ..., Emo ..., You ..." for proof of this. And as for Justin's voice, it may be nasal, but so was Johnny Rotten's...so was Jello Biafra's...so were many of the greatest punk rock screams of all time. It's annoying only to those who don't appreciate real punk rock. However, if you're a fan of any of the following bands, then Anti-Flag is for you...Sex Pistols, the Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, D.I., Bad Religion, Propaghandi, Swingin' Utters, Against All Authority.
