CD Reviews

Essential | dekalb, illinois | 05/28/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"nothing else makes everything ok for 2 and a half minutes than a lifetime song. this is their most cohesive and impressive work from start to finish. is it 21 minutes long? it feels like an hour (in a good way) - or at least it used to - before i knew it by heart from start to finish. the bliss, ache, and passion in these songs - from the sheer explosive energy, the heaving and winding nearly orchestral feel of the driving hardcore crash and crunch fused with unparalleled melodicism, and ari's introspective lyrics - this album lingers more like an incredibly memorable book than a rock album. this is cathartic. this is how life feels"

"So I started playing guitar when I was 14, figuring all the world needed was three chords a-la Green Day and weird lyrics a-la Nirvana. This continued on for about 3 more years, until I heard "Hello Bastards". I was sitting on the floor in Brandon's room, listening to Pet Shop Boys and Pull-Outs records, when he took the needle off the "Skip-O-Matic" record player he had and said "hey, this band's pretty cool, check it out" or something along those lines. From that point on, my views towards writing music completely changed. I realized punk can be multiple chord progressions, each one never repeating itself... vocals didn't have to be screeched as loud as possible... wait, you can PALM MUTE a power chord??? What!!! I hereby give full credit to Dan Yemin for teaching me how to really play guitar and Ari Katz for instilling some poetry and emotion into what I say when I play."

"Although it isn't their first release, I consider it to be... why? Because they used to kinda suck. This album is what happens when a band matures and reaches their potential. The singer used to be monotone and sing (if you can call it that) his high-schoolish poetry over music that didn't match the tone of the words. Hello Bastards shows he actually can sing - and well. The music has been refined as well. Anyway... this album is a complete 180. One of my favorite albums - and it will be yours too. Punk/pop-punk must-have."
