The Dillinger Four are a pretty low profile band, which is suprising as they're very good. Their two lead vocalists, one with a throaty hissing voice and the other with a growly shout, work well together doing the same kind of back-and-forth vocals that Rancid do so well. This is the kind of high-speed, sloppy, turbo-charged rock music that actually fits the definition of "punk rock" perfectly. Their lyrics are very well-written, downbeat but delivered at high speed, and mostly carrying a genuine message.
If you like punk, you definitely like this. Definitely!

this band are, without doubt, the best punk band of the modern day. they have boundless energy and riffs which put bands like blink 182 and the like to shame. lyrically they are genius, opting for a more "political/against society and its wrongs" stance rather than the ever more popular approach of singing about how a girl dumped you. they are one of the best live bands too. this album is the best one they've done so far, and with a new one out on fat wreck soon this year, they should definitely be a band to look out for in the future.

If you like your punk loud, brash and full of energy, this is for you. I love all their stuff and this is maybe the pick of them. Dual vocals like they have work so well, I can't understand why more bands don't use that style.

Five stars are not enough... 2 July 2000
By "chupacadabra" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rare are the punk bands who can manage to wear their ideals and principles on their sleeves without becoming anachronistic caricatures. Dillinger Four dispenses with run-of-the-mill punk rock artifice that's become so empty and rhetorical and common, the hollow sloganeering and the assumption that meticulously coiffed Manic Panic'd mohawks, spikey belts and a hundred punk band patches make for a political statement. On top of that, they manage to write great songs about their obvious disillusionment and frustration with the people who've turned a blind eye to, cashed in on, or otherwise abandoned their beliefs. While "Midwestern Songs for the Americas" tackled society on a more global level, with well-crafted, thoughtful songs about issues ranging from the prison system to the fashion industry to blue-collar wage slavery, "Versus God" turns its gaze inward, with the majority of the material focusing on the punk industry, the declawing of youth culture, cynicism and complacency. "Versus God" might as well have been titled "Versus Punk".
Musically, "Versus God" continues the evolution of Dillinger Four's grudgingly self-described pop-punk style. It's crunchy and catchy, with a solid foundation of punk roots that shows a variety of influences (from the requisite '77 Britpunk to SoCal hardcore to 80's Chicago/Touch and Go to Lookout! power pop) without being derivative or cliched. It's musical and melodic, perhaps their most accessible release yet. Yet the musicality is just a baited hook, a spoonful of sugar if you will, to ensure that their words get swallowed and absorbed.
Dillinger Four is a substantive, relevant band, and "Versus God" is the proof in the pudding.

Great cd but missed the catchiness and rawness of Midwestern 27 Jun 2000
By sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dillinger four's second full length on hopeless is a really great album but there are a few things that make it not as amazing as midwestern songs. First it misses the screaming that turns into pop-punk, that was my favorite part of the other. it also just isnt as catchy, but i have only had it for 3 or 4 days and i know it will grow on me. Anyway this is a great cd, and every song is really good especially "how many punx does it take to change a light bulb" and the very first song.

Better than your band, easily 28 Jun 2000
By Dylan S. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dillinger Four make all other bands sound like they're faking it. Their honesty, intellect and sense of humor should make other bands cringe. "Midwestern Songs..." didn't leave my car stereo for something like 5 months. Then I saw them in Minneapolis and bought "This S--- Is Genius" and THAT stayed in there 6 months. "Versus God" is only going on a couple weeks but I'm thinking 7 months isn't out of the question. Do I only listen to Dillinger Four? Pretty much. Buy all their stuff and see them live, they deserve it.

Not their best, but a solid effort. 23 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album, while having many redeeming qualities that fans of the band have come to love, is off a bit as far as lyrics are concerned. The duel vocals and fast paced punk are ever present, and the clarity of the songs is supurb, but I felt that this recording lacked a certain bite that came with their previous recordings. Many of the lyrics were too vague and similar to other songs on the album, but once you pop the cd in, all will be forgiven, because their musical talent makes up for all else. Overall a very solid and enjoyable effort, but their other two cd releases are slightly better.
