Slightly different to the other reviews,
By A Customer
This review is from: Sing Sing Death House (Audio CD)
I've read the other reviews of this album on here and i'm afraid mine is a little different to all the 5 stars and 'wow this is great' kind of thing. To me this album is split into two. Sick Of It All, I Am A Revenant, Seneca Falls, The Young Crazed Peeling, City Of Angels and Lordy Lordy are great tunes that are worth listening too. Can't say much more than that. However, Sing Sing Death House, Bullet and The Bullseye, Young Girl, Hate Me, Desperate and I Understand are tuneless and Brodys harsh, but cool singing voice just turns to pure unbearable screaming. The lyrics are very good throughout the whole album but some of the tracks let the whole thing down. It's a shame because from the first set of songs i listed i know the distillers can write good tunes but fail to do so in some cases. I will admit that one of the main reasons i feel this way is probably because i'm more into rock than punk and some of the songs would be great for a punk fan but not for rock. If you are into punk rock in a big way then although i may of seemed negative in this review, i would recommend you buy this because there are some good songs.
