sounds like a cross between the last two records (Flash Flash Flash and Black Tape) with a few curveballs thrown in there reaching out of the box. It has the hyperactivity of Flash Flash Flash, that I absolutely love. There's about half the record that has that all out abandon and then the other half moves out from that.
Here's the thing about Black Tape, I think Black Tape would have been great, but it seemed very smooth for a band that should not be very smooth. That's the only complaint that I had with it. The songs, as for the length of it, it's far from me to tell someone how to write a song, but as a listener, do I think punk rock songs should be two minutes long? Yeah, I do. No doubt about that. But, I like THE EXPLOSION when THE EXPLOSION are being THE EXPLOSION, you know what I mean? It's all out abandon, you can feel the energy even in a studio records. Half of Bury Me Standing is like that.
I can tell you that there are some curveballs, but I'm proud to release the record, I think if you're a fan of THE EXPLOSION, you'll dig it.
