Pure pop punk melodic sometimes-Alice in Chains sometimes-Dragonforce-ish sometimes-80’s metal. Wow. This record tried its best to tear the top off my head… and it nearly succeeded! There is a lot of energy here, holy crap.
I knew the song called Bat Country already, because I also have it on the Big Shiny Tunes 11 CD. It also makes me think of Hunter S. Thompson, and anything that can do that makes me happy.
There was a time in the 90s, half a lifetime ago for me, when a record like this would have been my favourite thing ever. These days, the melting pot still loves it, but it wouldn’t be all I listened to all day!
