Millencolin - Home From Home
on 14 September 2002
The first time i listened to this record i was slighty dissapointed for about 10 seconds wen i realised my predictions had come true and realised this is not going to be another life on a plate.
But then i realised tht this kicks major league ass, the opening track man or mouse a somewhat more rocky attempt than its predicesors manages to place almost any dumb lifeless creature into a frenzy of foot tappin madness with a chorus of 'yeah yeah yeah' being heard a mile off!
The album moves up another gear at the start of fingers crossed as you get to hear some of the more humble punk millencolin that i grew to love.
One of the main strenghths of this album i feel is that it is a cd that u can listen to all the way through with no weak songs.
This album is by no means life on a plate, its takes the direction of pennybridge pioneers on to the next stage, more rocky, more upbeat but sadly less punk.
Tracks that must be heard on this album include Fingers Crossed, Botanic Mistress and the Home From Home!
Its been an amazin 10 years for millencolin my only hope is that they can carry it on and progress even further without forgeting their past!
My advice as a huge millencolin fan would b to buy it if u r a millencolin fan and if your only just getting into millencolin then buy life on a plate first followed by pennybridge then you will b able to find millencolin at the biggest peaks of their carrers up 2 yet!
