Wow, Buddyhead sure knows how to pick 'em: The Icarus Line, Ink & Dagger, Text, and now YOUR ENEMIES FRIENDS. One word can be used to describe this cd (which is unfortunately only six songs): brilliant.

"A Life Without A Heart" opens the album with unbridled aggression, yet retains a fragmented pop feel with a great and incredibly catchy melody. This cd is filled with refined aggression, and the brashness and rugged vocals (both male and female) add to the anger and effiency of the delievery of the songs. But, the true higlight is the albums closing track, entitled "Your Enemies Are Your Enemies Friends." This is a perfect closing track to a perfect EP, very melancholy and relaxing, it left my jaw to the floor.

Ladies and gentlemen you have been told that bands like The Vines and The Strokes are here to save rock and roll, but although rock doesn't need saving, if it did, that band would be YOUR ENEMIES FRIENDS. Expect big things from this band in the future.

I freaking love Your Enemies Friends, so all of you overcritical knobs can just take off

Well Sammy I'm glad you can stand up for anal sex! Yeah good for you! Cos you obviously cant sit down. Get it? See because you're starfish is being pummeled ape-like by cock, I'm guessing it would hurt a little to sit down. Did you at least reach around there and give him a little hello? If not that’s just rude. What about your subscription to American Grizzly Bear magazine? I thought you dug those fat John Goodman types. Remember you said when they hold you it makes you feel safe? Like being in a big hairy jacket. Why do you insist on stroking buddyheads cocks? You think they're gonna see this and say "Hey that guy defended us, lets tea bag him?" Well maybe if you’re good this year Santa, might leave you a surprise. Twat.

i love love love this band and this record. i don't understand why people get all nuts on buddyhead. people don't hate nirvana because david geffen may not be the nicest person in the world. just because a band is on a label doesn't mean they're best friends...gosh.

Get off buddyheads jock you fucking groupie. How about you think for yourself instead of buddyhead telling you what to listen to. If buddyhead comes out and says Girls are yucky and cock in the ass feels good. Then you'll be cool way ahead of the rest of us. Twat

If you actually read articles on Buddyhead, you'd know that they already tell us that cock in the ass feels good. You need to know who you're bitching about before you bitch. Chump.

Maybe you should find another hobby instead of memorizing all of your current man crushes and jerking off to the latest issue of tiger beat. I bet you're panties are wet just thinking about that o-town gang bang forming in your head. twat

actually aaron north is the only one in the icarus line thats on the buddyhead "staff." maybe you should do your research before making obscure observations.

"your typical punknews.org reader will not understand this cd."
I felt I had to repeat it for everyone's sake. Way to voice how most of us feel about the reaction many of the punknews.org kids feel about the releases outside of the typical punk jurisdiction.

i love it when people post replies to remarks pretending to be the author of the article.

Your face is stupidly incorrect! I hate you@!@

Anonymous (October 12, 2002)

Their name is grammatically incorrect. How stupid is that? It should be "Your Enemies' Friends" or "The Friends of Your Enemies." I think I'll start a band called "Your Enemies' Friends" and ride the wave of confused success.

Awww! Someone has a crush. I think its sweet to defend him like that. I think he'll finally notice you now. Maybe he'll even give you that reach around you've been asking santa for.

Anonymous (October 12, 2002)

maybe you guys should lay off of him. he only mentioned buddyhead once.. and why? because this album is on buddyhead records. and he was commenting that the fact that he thinks buddyhead records has good bands.

Of course Buddyhead would pick the Icarus Line seeing as it is composed entirely of Buddyhead staff.

I haven't gotten the CD yet (though I plan to), but I saw them with Pretty Girls Make Graves and their set was GREAT.

Does the guy who wrote this work @ buddyhead? Anyway, amazing band mother fuckers.

Thank god I live in Seattle, where these guys are now taking residence. After seeing them once, I bought their CD. Second time I saw them much more up close, oh my fucking hell they rocked. Their CD is incredible. This is one of the coolest fucking bands out there right now, fucking insane band! RECOMMENDED!~
