This review is from: In Casino Out (Audio CD)
I bought this on the back on the excellent 'Relationship of Command' expecting more of the same, which is exactly what you get, only without the cracking melodies and huge riffs. When you listen to this, you end up realising what a huge step forward 'Relationship of Command' is for the band. 'Hulahoop Wounds' has a guitar fragment which could be stolen off Blink 182 were it not for the fact that this was released first, but it just does not have the same 4REAL feeling as 'Relationship of Command'. At 11 tracks and 38 minutes, its conciseness is impressive, but such a large proportion of the songs lack any real substance whatsoever that the album passes in a moment without leaving the slightest impression.
