BBC Review

There’s no one quite like The Bronx. One of only a few bands whose music is as loud as it is thoughtful, they’ve never been cradled comfortably by a genre or scene.

When the band sprung mariachi alter-egos it was surprising but made sense: the soulful streak that sashayed through their heavier material was brought to the fore and they began to reach the audiences critics predicted would flock to them previously.

Punk rock has treated them cruelly at times, but they never neglected it. It has, however, taken them a while to record more. This fourth eponymous effort, the follow-up to 2008’s third, is a mature, less-furious beast. They haven’t dispensed with the anger, but they do release it more sparingly.

On Under the Rabbit, vocalist Matt Caughthran sounds backed into a corner and at his agitated best, and Style Over Everything is similarly under siege. “We’ve come too far, we’re too bizarre to turn back now,” he cries and, truly, it’s good to have them back. Few bands are as self-aware and true to themselves as this.

Before all that, the dizzying and brilliant The Unholy Hand sets the tone for much of the album’s subject matter. What seems at first to be a howl of misery echoed by wage slaves everywhere brilliantly pulls back and reveals itself to tell the story of someone wedded miserably to celebrity, “rotting in the spotlight”.

Thankfully, the wisdom they have to impart isn’t a soft touch. Pilot Light dispenses rough judgment on excuses while Valley Heat mocks spurious requests for advice on how to ‘make it’.

They shun any need to impress with Life Less Ordinary. The album’s only real slow-burner, it might be too wistful for some; but it does allow Caughthran to collect himself and breathe a cool melancholy into his lyrics.

How much of this material will pass the ultimate test – inclusion in their thrilling, chaotic live show – remains to be seen. Songs as bold, honest and passionate as these shouldn’t have any trouble fitting in, though.

Format: Audio CD
I like the Bronx. If we forgive them their diversion into Mariachi (which I rather like as well to be honest)this is them at their best. Pummeling riffs thanks to a twin guitar attack (cliche I know, but it works), rock solid bass, drums that batter you round the eardrums and vocals that are at once angry, rasping yet, perhaps surprisingly, melodic. This is because they actually write songs which are instantly memorable,and uniquely theirs. Tracks such as Torches and Style over Everything have a hint of the mariachi about them, admittedly buried deep in the mix, but there nonetheless at least to my ears. Ribcage is a full on speedster while Valley heat could be a shouty Slade song. Life less ordinary is the only slow song, which serves as a break from the relentless onslaught and comes just at the right time before the album closers Last revelation which is a funky but powerful track and Price is right which is a full on rocker to end the album. Add to all this a top notch production which has everything clear as a bell but retains the energy that few bands are capable of nowadays. What with Biffy Clyro's new release and now this, maybe 2013 will see the return of challenging, powerful yet tuneful rock 'n' roll.

I've been waiting a good long while for The Bronx to release a new album and it was worth the wait. The album is a lot more melodic than their previous efforts at times but when it comes down to it it's The Bronx - THEY CAN DO NO WRONG

This album is just new and fresh and I agree with other reviews which state how good the vocals are, but I dont agree with some going on about how original they are,just listen to early no means no and you will understand what I mean . That said though, totally fresh, totally amazing and totally PUNK

Always love a band that can rock & this one certainly does, more punchy than NOFX, heavier than Green Day a great album, a big thumbs up from me.
