CKY have truly evolved with Carver City.
Hellions on Parade - A very strong opening track with a brilliant opening riff. I can really picture the mosh pits at a CKY gig when I listen to this. It experiments with vocal harmony, which has a powerful effect on the song. It really sets the standards high for the rest of the album.
...And She Never Returned - Like many songs on this album, there's so much going on in it you could listen to it 100 times and find something new every time. I didn't enjoy this song as much as the first but it's still a strong track
Rats in the Infirmary - One of the best. Great chorus and an equally great message in the lyrics.
Imaginary Threats - In my opinion, the weak point of the album. By the time this song ended I was becoming worried that there would be more like it. A well structured song, but I can't see myself headbanging and miming the lyrics to it any time soon.
The Boardwalk Body - Awesome. The opening riff is pure CKY, and it spirals upwards to new heights as the song goes on.
Plagued By Images - Another less memorable track, but it still has an interesting riff and structure that left me feeling disorientated.
Karmaworks - Not so much to say about this one. Nice opening riff, good structure, strong lyrics, and a class guitar solo.
Woe is Me - Slow at first and another I can picture a CKY gig to when listening to it. Chugging riff towards the middle, and fantastic structure both musically and lyrically.
A#1 Roller Rager - A much lighter song, easy to sing along with and memorable. It's a much simpler song than a lot of others, as less is going on at one time.
Old Carver's Bones - Mostly instrumental...but not quite. Acoustic and electric guitar and synthesized music combine a disorientating soundtrack. It's slightly strange in a way that's difficult to explain.
The Era of an End - A soft ending to an overall fantastic album. It brings to mind previous songs such as "To All of You" from Volume 1, with fantastic new Carver City material.
A great album just like "Volume 1", "Infiltrate-Destroy-Rebuild" and "An Answer can be Found" with all the merits of CKY that make them as popular as they are, with a new approach. I highly reccomend it.
