5.0 out of 5 stars Another blinder from the UK Ska'rdcore mob!
After the frankly incredible debut by Capdown, this second installment doesn't disappoint! It is slightly different to the first album, with a better produced feel, and it does sound slightly beefier than the original, but the songs are just as good! The political message is still as strong as on the original album, and anyone with even the slightest liking of ska, punk...

3.0 out of 5 stars One more to my collection
More artistic than "civil disobedients" and "wind up toys", not so much of my preference as i am more into bands like Bad Religion, Strike Anywhere and Pennywise but still i am happy to add it in my collection.

This review is from: Pound for the Sound (Audio CD)
After the frankly incredible debut by Capdown, this second installment doesn't disappoint! It is slightly different to the first album, with a better produced feel, and it does sound slightly beefier than the original, but the songs are just as good! The political message is still as strong as on the original album, and anyone with even the slightest liking of ska, punk or hardcore will absolutely adore this gem.
The guitar work is beefed up, the sax solos are still awesome, and the great and varied vocals are back! Capdown are definitely one of the top UK bands, as was demonstrated when Bad Religion came over for a one off gig, and had Capdown as support.
Hopefully we will see another album soon, becasue I just can't get enough of this awesome band!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Finest UK Ska act Strike back with a Stunning new album!, 23 Sept. 2001
This review is from: Pound for the Sound (Audio CD)
Wow Capdown again don't disapoint with another unique album that cant help but draw attention to it's self. Jake's explosive sax solo's do everything for this album the hardcore and ska adds to the great sound that Capdown produce. Having been very impressed with the new sound they have produced I can definately see Capdown going on to bigger things. "Faith No More" sets the album of with an explosion of hardcore ska that is catchy yet hard hitting with its political lyrics, "Pound For The Sound" is re-realesed and effects are used to make this the prime example of Capdown's new more complexed and structurised sound. "Dealer Fever" see's them explore new sounds of the Jungle genre and "Dub #2" is a musical masterpiece to follow from "Dub #1"'s great chilling feel. If you found "Civil Disobedients" in the slightist good then you'll love this masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars not as good as civil, but still a blinder, 9 Nov. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Pound for the Sound (Audio CD)
after the near perfect 'civil disobedients' many people were expecting this album to surpass all its predecessors, however it fails to do this. However if you like catchy, hardcore ska then this is for you. The sound is more polished than 'civil disobedients' and the saxaphone sounds great. Any self respecting punk fan should have this, or indeed any capdown album in their cd collection. BUY A CAPDOWN ALBUM NOW!!

5.0 out of 5 stars capdown are still in fine fettle, 29 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Pound for the Sound (Audio CD)
this album might not be as straightforward as civil disobedients and not quite as skatastic but it's still grrrrrrreat. the band manage to delve deeper into their sound while still keeping their no nonsense songwriting style. capdown accept no prisoners live and on cd they are finally beginning to get a good sound. civil disobedients while being a more hyper album suffered by poor mixing and production. the productions cleaned up here, though thankfully not too much and the tracks actually start and finish where they should. hurrah. capdown are gonna be massive, buy this cd now.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's a grower, honest!, 28 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Pound for the Sound (Audio CD)
This cd has come under a bit of criticism, and they have a fair point. I was initially a bit dissapointed, "FAith no more" and "pound for the sound" are easily the best songs, but tracks 2 and 4 are excellent too. The album then become really experimental, but stick with it, and you'll soon like it. (If you liked the experimental syle on King Prawn's surrender to the blender, you'll like this)
If you want more catchy, dancy skacore, buy the first album, or see their label mates 'Lightyear'

5.0 out of 5 stars Get ready to skank... HARD, 4 Sept. 2001
This review is from: Pound for the Sound (Audio CD)
This Rockin new album smashes the pants off of their last, 'civil disobediants' with their ideosyncratic fusion of upbeat tenor sax \clarinet combos with heavy guitar riffs. Recorded at Philia studios in Henley, their new album has been played to enthralled audiences over the summer and sets to exceed all expectations when it crashes on to the scene. This is definately one not to miss. Watch out for the title tune ' pound for the sound ' its gonna make the crowds go mental.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible skardcore by the premier uk ska/hardcore band, 11 Sept. 2001
This review is from: Pound for the Sound (Audio CD)
This album combines the skank of operation ivy the hardcore of consumed the brass implentation of lubby nugget and the political aggression of anit-flag. But all of that put together doesnt prepare you Capdowns 2nd full length release 'pound for the sound'. The title track has a comination of skanking guitar with sax line with the occasional harcore/slightly (only slightely) metally breakdown. This sets the tone for the rest of the album. What sets this album apart from their first release is the more extremitys of it , the harcore tunes ARE HARCORE but the ska tunes are more skanky. if you're into the poppy punky stuff like blink182 greenday reel big fish etc... THIS WILL BLOW YOUR MIND
