Voice Of Addiction - Reduce, Reuse, Resist
The fine line between the Punk and Rock can become so well shaded, it's hard to decipher the actual potential of a sound. So that simply leaves you with your own vices of attraction.
Track two "Constant Pollution" alludes to the under-lying subject text as referenced in the aforementioned album title. Now the song itself begins with a commanding bass and drums, while the guitars drive nicely. The most punkward track here may be "Warriors", with chants and all the trimmings. Another track more attributed to a Punk sound is "Decision Street" which features a sweet nearly Reggae strummed transition.
Songs like the lead track "Wrecking Ball" have a brutty mentality. Most tracks on "Reduce, Reuse, Resist" come with a blistering pace and leave little doubt as to the likelihood of an acoustic cover song. don't get me wrong, from time to time ("September Remembered" "45 Revolutions" & "Need Change"), you're privied to an acoustic intro and buildup, but for the most part, this album feeds of high-energy and distortion.
It took three to four total spins, but this release began to grow on me like a fungus. While I've never been one to enjoy the Punk (shaded or not) sound, this record does a nice job of sitting on the fence of Punk grooves but Rock forum.
