From the opening guitars of the first track, this album just oozes energy! It does seem to tail off a bit towards the 2nd half, but even so, it's still great stuff. It's all good singalong stuff, sure to get you in a happy mood, with tunes you find yourself humming days later. Well worth buying.
"Together again for the first time" is Pulley's long awaited fourth albulm in the space of five years.An intense attack of dynamic 'power punk,' the new album is packed full of strong, melodic choruses, and great sounding guitar riffs. Songs to listen out for are 'Empty' and the opening track 'In search' that convinced me that this is a 'must have' albulm for all punk fans, and should prove to anyone that Pulley are now up there with bands such as Pennywise and NOFX, and are an inspirational modern punk band
When looking for good punk CD's you need look no further than the Epitaph label. No suprise then that Pulley are signed to them. The general opinion is that 'Together again for the first time' is Pulleys best album so far and this is quite true. As you would expect with Pulley there is a brilliant mix of good punk and great melodies but also top vocals which in points give some of the songs a ballad feel which increases their appeal. They have also gone into hardcore punk a little on a couple of songs. If you have already heard 'Runaway' on Punk-o-rama 6 or 'The Ocean Song' and weren't too impressed my advice is don't be fooled. Unlike their last album I believe the best songs have been left on the album and not appeared on various Punk-o-ramas. Having said this the album is not groundbreaking and it could have done with a fantastic song instead of all good and some great songs to make the album stand out. What it has done is cemented Pulleys place as one of the premiere bands around at the moment and on the basis of this they can only go from strengh to strengh until they will be challenging Guttermouth and Pennywise at the top of my CD stack.
I have always classed Pulley as one of Epitaph's stronger bands. Thier self titled album was amazing, full of powerful, fast punk tracks, with enougth variety make a complete album which can be listed to over and over again. They were one of the best live acts i've seen, full of energy. Yet this album SUCKS!!! I'ts boring, bland pop music for a Green Day/ Blink 182/New Found Glory generation. The tracks all sound the same, slow! All the energy has gone leaving you with 30mins of dullness, it's so boring it actually gave me a head ache. I really recomend you buy the self titlted album, that is a classic, this is not even close.
