5.0 out of 5 stars Max Raptor Rock, 2 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Portraits (Audio CD)
I've seen this band 3 times live, each time sort of by accident (one time support act, twice at a festival) and enjoyed them on all 3 occaisions, finding their energy, noise and anthemic style irresistable, so I bought their album for Christmas and haven't stopped listing to it since.

The great energy of their live performances really carries through, and with the volume up its almost like seeing them for the first time again.

Songs to look out for - along with Great and the Good + The King is Dead (which go without saying) - are Obey the Whips, Patron Saint of Nothing, and Carolina. All are catchy and will have you chanting along, and all come with a feeling of a dedicated performance which is sadly a rare commodity these days, and a lot of their tracks (as someone has already mentioned) manage to combine politics without being in the slightest bit preachy.

The only downside for me is that the album isn't longer. At 8 tracks long (the longest of which stands at 3.45), you're cut loose, just as you're dying to hear more. And given that one of my favourite songs from the band's live set (Conversations with Death) wasn't on the album, its not as if they didn't have the material.

Anyway, great album, so much energy, drive and noise it'll blow you away, just wish there was more.
