CD Reviews

Not your typical Oi album
punkviper | Pittsburgh, PA USA | 07/25/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Those looking for the typical full-on assault of Blitz' punk material might be disappointed with this one. A latter-day effort, this one actually might be more interesting than the band's previous buzzsaw attack records.What happened to Blitz, as what happened to a few other bands of the 3rd wave UK punk era (Anti-Nowhere League, Anti-Pasti, Chron Gen), was that they eventually eschewed the punk rage and straight forward volume attack in favor of a more dreary, synthed, subversive sound. Almost like a post-new-wave genre, Blitz still have the resentment and anger down pat, but this time around they display it in a more low-key, almost (dare I say!) gothic tone.I mean, let's face it, punk is a limiting genre, especially for those with little to say in the first place. The Killing Dream is a logical continuance of that punk thought, merely expressed with some darker, more subtle overtones. And it works.When i first got into "punk," I laughed at material like this. It wasn't loud enough, it wasn't fast enough, it just wasn't "punk enough." Then old age set in, and music like this, that kept the spirit of punk but conveyed it in a darker different manner, became quite appealing (my hearing's gone as it is!)So if you're ready to open your mind to an extension of punk, then by all means get this. If not, wait a few years."

"THE GUITAR PRODUCTION ON THIS ALBUM IS MASSIVE
CHRISTY WAS REVEIWING THE WRONG ALBUM. SHE GOT THIS MIXED UP WITH THE EMPIRE JUSTICE ALBUM.
KILLING DREAM IS PURE PUNK WITH A BIT OF GOTH AND THRASH THOWN IN. WALKAWAY, THOSE DAYS. THESE ARE SONGS THAT THE LIKES OF RANCID CANNOT COMPETE WITH.
NEVER SURRENDER."
