The Terror State,
This review is from: The Terror State (Audio CD)
This album blew me away! I couldn't believe that a band that I hadn't even heard of 2 years ago could be so great. 'Post-War Breakout' is a great song with a brilliant snaking bassline, 'Mind The G.A.T.T.' has some of the greatest melodies ever written, 'Death Of A Nation' is undoubtedly the angriest song on the album with it's distinct hardcore moments, 'Power To The Peaceful' is a blatant stadium rock anthem with a 'catchy-as-a-cold' chorus, 'You Can Kill The Protestor, But You Can't Kill The Protest' is another example of how both angry AND melodic Anti-Flag can be. 'Turncoat' is another memorable song, complete with insulting chorus, 'When You Don't Control Your Government People Want To Kill You' has another insanely brilliant melody, 'Sold As Freedom' has as much lyrics squeezed into the last part of the chorus as any other song EVER, 'Operation Iraqi Liberation (O.I.L.)' is one of the greatest songs ever recorded, 'Rank-N-File' has a complicated bassline chorus, but nevertheless, excellent, 'Tearing Down The Borders' has another catchy chorus, even chant-like. The weakest, but still good, song 'Wake Up!' Has a very long chorus, but is sung in about 20 seconds. And now for the greatest song on the album, 'One People, One Struggle' with it's irresistible melodys, hooks, harmonies and chorus make up for everything. The bonus track is also a short but angry and expletive blast of punk rock. Enjoy!
***** - Astounding! Brilliant! Best Album Ever!!!
