5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 11 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Candy Apple Grey (Audio CD)
What a great punk/rock record.

I often read and hear people saying 'anyone who listens to modern 'punk' rock - should listen to this'.

Well i did force someone to listen to it - and they hated it - they said it sounded wishy washy and stupid and the guitars were not loud enough.

well abviously my heart was broken - but it just assured me that the modern day casual MTV audience has scant knowledge or any desire to hear anything that isnt marketed to them directly with a price tag to boot too.

If you are a fan of proper rock music - thats the stuff written by real people and not made for a mass audience with a shiny pop finish and suitably trendy boys playing guitars - then you have to have this.

Yes it doesnt sound as clean and bombastic as the records made nowadays, but the tunes and the songwirting on it are unrivalled in the world of melodic punk/rock.

It has raw energy, melody, talented musicians, excellent songwriters tangled in a web of sexual frustration, drugs, heartbreak and booze - and ita comes out in the beautiful mix of songs of 'candy apple grey' -

It has 2 mellow tracks on it - but a number of cracking rock songs each with its very own infectious hook. 'Sorry somehow' being my personal fave with its inclusion of a cathcy keyboard hook alongside punding drums and blistering guitar.

i'd say its better than 'flip your wig' - and competing with 'Wharehouse' for their best.
