5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important albums ever, 1 July 2002
This review is from: The Shape of Punk to Come (Audio CD)
When i first heard this album i was both shocked and amazed at how amazing it was. Refused have a sound like no other band, being both powerful, melodic and agressive without ever loosing their artistic and musical talents. Dennis Lyxzen's vocal's are brilliant throughout, screeching with the wailing guitars in songs such as "Protest Song '68" and peacefulling harmonising with beautiful chords in songs such as "Liberation Frequency". Refused have a rare talent of being able to suddenly turn a song on its head, changing its direction and increasing its intensity to levels most bands could only dream of. "The Shape of Punk to Come" is one of the most complete albums you are ever likely to hear, there is not a wasted second on the entire album which aims to make as much of a political statement as it does a musical statement. There really is nothing else quite like it and I would highly reccomend it to any fan of the "Punk Hardcore" genre.
This is the last album the band made, with Dennis Lyxzen going on to form "The (international) Noise Conspiracy" and the other 4 members forming the band "Text".
Just listen to "New Noise" and experience the energy and power, it *will* change your life...
