Comments: There isn’t much to say about this album. It’s a lot of what Mission of Burma fans love above Mission of Burma. If you don’t love Mission of Burma, you are going to probably write this album off as meh-verage old guy punk rock. There is some really really catchy, drill Sargent drumming and blistering noisy guitar especially in the last five songs.

Grade: 9.0
