Brilliance. Pure brilliance. Within 30 seconds of the CD you know you've found something special. Kicking off with 'Rob Wants You Dead', somewhat of an anthem amongst local Alias fans, this album straught away grabs hold of you and makes you listen.
As a band, they are one of the tightest around. As musicians, each of them is extremely talented, and as song-writers they are unrivalled in the UK Ska scene.
The entire album is hard hitting, intelligent, and flawlessly produced. Every track deserves to be there, and you'll find yourself going back to them time and time again. Particular tracks to look out for are the outstanding 'Head-Up', which is everything decent Ska-Core should be, and my personal favourite, 'One to One', which as well as having one of the best brass parts I've heard, seems to be an album in itself.
I highly recommend this album. If you've never heard them before and like your ska, it's well worth the risk. If you have heard them before, then no doubt you would own the album already.
Believe me when I say, once you own this album, you'll wonder how you ever got by without it.
