CD Reviews

Is it just coincidence that everyone gives this album five?

"The answer - no. That's because it's one of the best albums of the 90s - if not the best. In fact, it's just as much a punk classic as the first albums by the Ramones or the Cramps or New York Dolls. Thank god there's still bands like the Turks who beleive in the devine powers of rock 'n' roll, and that punk is a great way to bring those powers out. A vital rock 'n' roll document for one and all who want to save rock 'n' roll from the clutches of MTV and popular radio. Best songs: "Born Toulouse-Letoric", "Runnin' On Go", "Mr. Suit", "I'm Weak", and "Crying In the Beer of a Drunk Man". Than again, not a single song is bad."
One more reason Midwest punk is the best

"Like many white suburban punks growing up in the early- to mid-80s, I lost my way in college. With a few exceptions, punk got boring and I found myself listening to more "college" rock. By the time this record came out I was in my mid-20s and spending all of money on oldies because nothing new was any good. The New Bomb Turks almost singlehandedly revived punk rock for the next six or seven years. This album will be looked at as one now looks at "Fun House" or the Ramones first record or "Never Mind the Bollocks" or "The Clash" or "Out of Step" or "Static Age" or "Double Nickels on the Dime." Essential if you think you're into punk."

"I still remember when I bought this album..It was my junior year of college back in 1993 at University of Louisville.Browsing the punk section,I came across an album by a band I wasn't familiar with,the New Bomb Turks.I took the album to the register,put it on when I got home,and got my head completely blown off just like when I heard the Ramones for the first time.From Born Toulouse-Lautrec to Crying in the Beer of a Drunk Man,this is an aural assault on your senses and your punk rock complacency.Wow,what a freakin ride.My personal favorites are Dragstrip Riot,Sucker Punch and Tattoed Apathetic Hate Boys,but to be perfectly blunt,there's not a bad tune on the whole album.Buy it,sit down,and prepare to want to jump up and shout HALLELUJAH!!!all over again..This'll do ya just right."
