Greatest of the Greats
D. Lynn | 05/03/2005

"I don't care who you are, but if you like music with an incredible message that satirizes society and really makes you think; then you want to buy this cd and drink up Dick's every word. The Subhumans are an amazing band that really puches you in the gut with every word and chord. Plus, it is great to freak out your Jappy cousin or your over zealous parents. You might also want to pick up The Day the Country Died also, but Time Flies/Rats is my favourite cd 'cos it is a bit heavier. Cheers mates!!"
Great cd. Totally worth your money.

"AS i said about 'the day the country died', this music has a deep characteristic to it. It has a great deal of political satire and greatly crafted lyrics. songs like "work-rest-play-die" are so deep and meaningful, unlike (and don't get me wrong, i love other punk too) a lot of other punk stuff: "You can go blue in the face talking about the human race
How they got to outer space but it never stopped the wars
And how the whole of this humanity is based on greed and vanity The ones who make decisions are the ones who make the laws" just one example of the exelent craftmanship of their lyrics. BUY THIS CD."
Set me straight

"Normally, I think it's a bad idea for a band to get back together, especially after a decade's gone by. But, I have to say, I was thrilled when the Subhumans got back together. I saw them on that first tour in Pittsburgh... great show. Rats/ Time Flies was the first album I had... I've had it close to twenty years now, and it's one of the few English punk bands that still sounds fresh to me.

I still remember a time when songs like "No" made me nervous. "Nobody Says Anything on Buses" and "When the Bomb Drops" ESPECIALLY, "When the.." made the Subhumans the be-all-end-all for me back in the day. THat blend of punk, ska, and reverby surf... This album had such a huge impact on me that I remember filling out my first job (I was fourteen, and needed a note from school to get a job at the grocers) and filled out my application all in the cryptic writing style familiar to all Subhumans releases."
