A debut for the next big band......,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Conduit (Audio CD)
This will no doubt be sacrilege but 'Casually Dressed..' sat on my shelf for years without so much as a dusting off. I appreciated the scene at the time but just didn't get this band for some reason.
Ten-ish years later I thought, these guys are still going, there must be something to them and with the help of a Classic Rock mag review bought 'Welcome Home Armageddon.' Excellent album and grown on me over the last couple of years so Conduit was a no brainer.
What a cracking album. Short, sweet, no-nonsense and with a real punk feel to it. The melody is still there but it doesn't overbear the raw and punky vibe. The whole album has the feel of a debut, it's fresh, enthusiastic, pacey, and does not sound like a band hindered by expectations.
As a result 'Casually Dressed....' has been dusted and the back catalogue bought. If you are not sure where to start with your FFAF journey, start here and work back. It's one of the best mid career revivers I've ever heard.
