Format: Audio CD
Drive Like Jehu and Fugazi were frequently cited as key influences on the brilliant At the Drive-in and the comparison is clear. DLJ combine the ear for a big riff and the songwriting ability of Fugazi, the love of noise-making of Sonic Youth (without the occasional meandering), and the direction and intensity of Steve Albini's various projects to brilliant effect, on this their second and final album. The vocals will be familiar to anyone who's heard Cedric Bixler's, although the lyrics are less cryptic. The majority of the songs on this album are of the very loud and very fast variety, but whereas ATDi tended to build from the start of a song and ratchet up the intensity, DLJ dive headfirst and see if they can keep the pace up, whilst the slower songs are built up on circling repetitive riffs and layered instrumentation similar to ATDi's. With three added songs on to the original album the CD lasts around 70 minutes but listening, you are left with hardly a moment to be distracted and the whole package is a stunning and exhilirating journey for both the heart and the mind. It is thoroughly recommended to any person who likes any of the above mentioned bands or are into post-hardcore which is prepared to push the boundaries of the genre.

If you think you love loud, angular, pissed-off, math punk, Check Yank Crime out and find out. Unusual time signatures add to the chaos by creating room for riffs and chord sequences so clever you'd swear the ghost of Chopin has a hand. Nothing's given away, so be prepared to work. The rewards at times border on the transcendent.

After much deliberation, I have decided this is my favourite albumn... ever. I bought it on upon hearing 'Caress' off DLJ's first albumn and I was instantly blown away by how raw, aggressive and at the same time melodic it is. As said in the other reviews they are a similar band to Fugazi, and despite liking Fugazi more generally; I definately enjoy this albumn more than any one Fugazi albumn. The riffs are unparalleled by any other band i've heard, and even Hot Snakes (which is basically what DLJ are now) do not equal their former band for pure energy and genius song writing. I can think of few other bands that come close to matching DLJ, Hoover being one of them, and to a lesser (and more watered down extent) maybe planes mistaken for stars; but here probably only because DLJ are a massive influence on them. For me, it was instantly accessible, but I can see how it wouldn't be for others due to having very few pop hooks. I'm not saying buy this albumn if you love Fugazi or 'emo' type music, I'm saying buy it if you love music. It gets noisy in parts and you won't find any catchy sing along choruses, but surely this is what real punk rock is about; avoiding the mainstream, over used methods of songwriting and concentrating on the energy and aggression of the music.
