5.0 out of 5 stars Punk is dead... Long live The Bronx, 22 Oct 2006
This review is from: The Bronx (2) (Audio CD)
Forget Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco; Los Angeles-based four-piece The Bronx have delivered possibly the catchiest, most diverse-sounding punk-rock album of the year.

The band's second eponymous album in 2 years, this is more varied in pace than its predecessor - less frenetic, perhaps, but with an added, palpable sense of groove and a genuine, gutter-level feel thanks largely to vocalist Matt Caughthran's glass-gargling bellows and serial-killer screams. And yet, with the likes of 'Small Stone' and, in particular, 'History's Stranglers' (2 minutes 46 seconds of pure, cathartic perfection) the listener gets the instant adrenaline hits alongside the mournful folk-punk of 'Dirty Leaves'.

Punk may be dead, but this is a celebratory, uplifting salute to its spirit and it demands your attention immediately. Go buy!
