CH3's fear of being left out
(3 out of 5 stars)
"this is good listen, granted; much more so than alot of the "revival punk" slop that's being thrown around from 70's and 80's has-beens and never-weres. curiosity from their first albums was the main selling point for this one, and i have to say i wasn't let down - too bad that if they had never been heard of in the 80's this record would either be getting slammed as an "i've heard this a thousand times" release or not being paid any attention at all. if you're looking for a slightly extended walk down memory lane with a couple new forks in the road, jump on it. if you're looking for a real punk rock record - punk rock in the sense of breaking new ground - stop looking at the milkers from 20 years ago and dig deeper into the bands that are pushing the limits of today but getting pushed aside by re-animated corpses of groups that are riding out the "old school punk trend" while they can make a buck. after all, who needs to hear another band push the limits of 20 years ago? too bad the older bands like CH3 can't learn a few things from the bands that learned from them while they were off working day jobs after the 1st round breakups 20 years ago. it might make the resurgence more like the riot it should be, not the cast of relics it is."
Channel 3 �CH3� CD
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Who woulda thunk that one of the best punk albums of 2002 would come from stalwarts Channel 3? Back together after a few years laying low (their last album was the live ?How Do You Open This Damn Thing? from ?94) , these guys come screaming out of the gate with this amazing, fast-paced powerhouse of an album that harkens back to their first two albums, ?Fear Of Life? and ?When The Lights Go Out.? Gone are any of the metal and hard rock flourishes that graced some of their ?80s albums, this one is full of catchy tunes with hard-driving punk guitar, and the great full-throated vocals of singer Mike Magrann. 13 great barn burners here, and really, they?re all great, but if I had to point out faves, I?d go with ?The Whine Of Youth,? ?Time To Kill,? ?Better Days? and ?The Fortune Is A Lie.? Oh, and the vinyl version contains a bonus track. -Alan Wright, Seattle WA"
