Why the Suspects are bound to be big
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The pride of the D.C. punk scene, New Dawn is the Suspects second album. With smashing vocalist Brian Gayton, and producer/drummer Kent Stax leading the way for a rejuvinated and aggressive style in the Old School punk scene, the Suspects can't fail. Their honesty comes shining through on "From the heart", and they bring back a Ramones-esque sound to punk in the title track "New Dawn In The 21st Century." With classic moshing ballads as Eads Street Punks and Pistol Whipped, the Suspects are bound to be either really big in the punk scene or they are bound to suffer the same fate as The Misfits -becoming one of the most underappriciated bands in the punk scene. This album is not for the weak of heart or crackheads who listen to the new school crap alternative that they like to label punk. This is thinking mans music, its fast and its aggressive, something the scene has lacked lately. If you are in need of something to get you riled up, look no further."
