Nothing New, But No-One Does Unoriginal Better Than Pulley

"There's nothing particularly special or unique about Pulley as a band, yet the songs on this album have the capacity to evoke a smile or strike an angst-ridden cord in anyone and sometimes that's all you really want from a punk band. Let Bad Religion do the intellectual and muscial genius thing and let NOFX and The Vandals focus on being devastatingly witty and absurd, Pulley is neither, but they don't attempt to be. There are a few bland tracks on this album, (ahem Soberbeah) but most of them hit the mark by being both musically and lyrically adequate. This is not one of those classic genre-defining albums that the boys from Bad Religion, Rancid and NOFX have produced, but it's where Pulley arguably attained their sound and if you only ever buy one Pulley album, make it this one."
Punk is Life

"Okay, so Pulley is not an original band with a sound all their own. Their style of punk rock has been around a long time and will continue on long after this band calls it quits. I've listened to most Pulley albums and this is definitly their finest hour (well 40 min). What's cool about Pulley isn't that they bring something new to the table, but that they take what was already there and rock it's ass off!
I listen to this album and can just hear the passion seeping through the speakers. It's obvious these guys love what they do and it shows. Punk rock is a way of life for Pulley, they're not out to make a million, they're out to write good songs and wrap their music in an intensity for their love of the genre.
No Pulley album gets that point across quite as well as this one."
