This album I feel is a vast improvement over their other albums. Track highlights are Dead friends and unconditional love. This is the first album I ever heard from Against Me and the only one after listening to their other albums, it is their best.
Atom Willards drumming invigorates the album through the ten tracks.
If this band gets you a rocking and a rolling, I’d highly recommend the Front Bottoms. They are an indie pop punk band out of Hoboken, New Jersey, and many of their lyrics draw inspiration from Ellison — primarily American Psycho. The lyrical genius is highlighted in songs like “Twin Size Mattress” and “Swimming Pools,” plus front-man Brian Sella gives heart-felt performances in all songs, particularly “Maps.” Almost all of the songs, from three albums and two EPs, allude to topics similar to Ellison’s writing. In fact, a song titled, “Lipstick Covered Magnet” takes the title from a description of Courtney by Patrick Bateman. And in “Boredom is the Reason” Brian Sella mentions the need to feel lethal; he mentions the need to read American Psycho again.
Please if you like this recommendation, recommend me some more music. I really just want to learn more of the musical world.
