This is proper punk rock,
This review is from: Turn Against This Land (Audio CD)
I would describe the style of 'dogs' as punk rock although not in the sense of American punk rock. I must point out that this album in no way sounds like all that green day, blink 182, offspring nonsense. This is quality British hard hitting punk rock and puts all that stuff to shame. The lyrics are often gritty and raw (particularly on track 'end of an era', parents be warned!) but always full of passion. I have not had this album long, and the first time i heard it i must say i didn't think it was that great, how foolish of me! On a second listen however i loved it. Standout tracks for me are 'tarred and feathered' and 'heading for an early grave'. In terms of comparisons with other artists, i can't say that i have really listened to any other band with a very similar sound. I detected a little bit of 'sex pistols' in there and i would say if you like 'the rakes' and 'babyshambles' you should definitely try this.
This is a definite must for any fan of British rock music. Also if you are thinking of buying a green day/ blink 182 album soon (most reading this probably won't) then forget that and buy 'dogs' - 'turn against this land' instead
