5.0 out of 5 stars Movielife's best yet, 25 Feb. 2003
This review is from: 40 Hour Train Back to Penn (Audio CD)
This is The Movielife's first full length album on Drive Thru, their last was This Time Next Year on Revelation. That album was angry melodic hardcore with a frenetic pace throughout and some great singalong/shoutalong moments. Personally though, I prefer this.
40 Hour Train Back To Penn is named after the band having to take a train back to their home after their van went over on a corner. That nearly made them quit, I'm really glad they didn't because this is a fine piece of work. That event also inspired the song Jamestown, the first single, which is as good as anything on This Time Next Year. The album makes a blistering start with Face or Kneecaps and Jamestown but then goes on to show maturation and diversity. There's a beautiful re-hash of old song Sailor Tatoos as a bonus track and tracks like Ship To Shore and Keep Never Changing have great lyrics and a slower pace. There's brilliantly simple pop-punk like Hey and Scary in the middle too, that betters the stuff on the Drive Thru EP. This is not for everyone who likes the movielife as its not as fast or angry as the last full length but I really like it. It's definitely worth checking out if you like any other Drive Thru band.
