another solid effort,
This review is from: Kingwood (Audio CD)
This album is another pretty good attempt from millencolin. As usual the songs are hit and miss with the 'misses' not being rubbish songs, just not up to millencolin's high standards.
The track opens with 4 very decent songs, the second and third being very catchy with a pop punk hook that could entertain even the most elitist punk. These songs remind me of 'botanic mistress' where songs start off great and slowly peter out towards the end.
I didnt really like Biftek supernova or My name is Golden. The middle tracks which dont seem to be catchy or have any depth within the lyrics.
Ray is another catchy song but with a weaker chorus. It falls down because the song tries to include too much attitude with the lyrics.
However the rest of the album doesnt fail to dissapoint. Millencolin, despite claiming theyve gone more punk than rock, have not left behind the greatness of songs like 'no cigar' and 'montego' for sellout punky songs. The songs at the end have genuine emotion and good lyrics, which hopefully will appeal to both punk and rock fans.
