Pressure Point play a more melodic brand of street punk that really reminds me of the Anti-Heroes mixed with Lars Frederickson and the Bastards mixed with early Rancid. Especially on the bass lines, they sound exactly like Matt Freeman's playing style. While with these influences and sharing membe.

Pressure Point play a more melodic brand of street punk that really reminds me of the Anti-Heroes mixed with Lars Frederickson and the Bastards mixed with early Rancid. Especially on the bass lines, they sound exactly like Matt Freeman's playing style. While with these influences and sharing members Nate Hat on bass and Nate Mohawk (come on can't we think up better hardcore names than this) on drums with the Whisky Rebels, I just couldn't get into this band that much.

The songs weren't terrible and I really liked some of them, check out the organ on Drinking With the Damned, a drinking song to remember a good drinking buddy, The Ballad of Richard Davis, a song about the organization of the unions, and Uprise, a song about uprising, but as a whole this album just did nothing for me.

There were some cool bass lines and a lot of aggression but I've just heard the same formula to many times and this just didn't give me anything to remember it by.

hey sacto pride guy, i am from sacto all i know about pressure point is that the singer is the worlds biggest pile of shit, molesting kids?!?! he would try to fuck your mom if you turned your back on him. but for real isnt he going to prison for for statutory rape?
as for their lyrical content most of it is bullshit anyone that lives here knows that. thats why he just kicks it with high school kids, they belive all his bullshit!

How come every time someone says they don't like some generic street punk band, meatheads automatically link that to liking Emo music? Not everybody that thinks Pressure point are boring thinks emo is okay. I fucking hate the shit, and, at the same time, I think Pressure point is kind of not good. I don't hate them, I've just heard it all before. They've fallen into the "be the bands we like" trap.

-"What do you think Rancid's or The Bastards or Blood for Blood and countless other bands songs are about?"

my fuckin point exactly. some people are too fuckin stupid to actually understand what "meaningful lyrics" are.

-"Since most of us aren't from San Fransisco..."

its SACRAMENTO you fucking moron. learn to read, stop listening to fuckin emo, and then find your fucking balls. until then, just shut the fuck up.

pressure point sacto pride. oi!

What do you think Rancid's or The Bastards or Blood for Blood and countless other bands songs are about?

"I'm gving it positive star points because they ARE much better than the shitty Canadian Emo pressure point. Those guys can burn in hell."
yea, and don't you love how they spell it preshure point?
some bands just irritate me

Bu there's the problem. Since most of us aren't from San Fransisco, and we aren't friends with the band, we don't know the stories behind the songs. That's the problem with writing a bunch of songs about your friends and funny things that happen to you and your freinds when you're drunk. It's a great album for the band and friends of the band to listen to, but nobody else really cares that much.

I'm gving it positive star points because they ARE much better than the shitty Canadian Emo pressure point. Those guys can burn in hell.

im good friends with pressure point here in sacramento and im not just saying this cause they're my buds, im saying this cause they fuckin rock. their music is true hardcore street punk and if you knew the stories behind some of the songs then you'd actually fucking listen to it and enjoy it and not have your head up your ass. you stupid pop-loving fucks.

pressure point sacto pride. oi!

CallingLondon (January 22, 2003)

what are you talking about? most people here fuckign bash the hell out of most of the pop stuff.

kanguy (January 22, 2003)

This is a great fucking cd and if you don't like street punk/oi! then don't listen to it, bottom line.

you kids are fucking gay anytime some poser band puts out a rip off of a new found glory album(starting line), jimmy eat world(name taken), etc etc you pussies love it fuck you poser faggots

bruceless (January 21, 2003)

I must say that we have some really boring album art here. I enjoyed the album, but it's very much unmemorable when pitted against the test of time.

Vien (January 21, 2003)

I actually bought this album from the Transplants show when Pressure Point opened up. I quickly got bored of it.
But yeah, the bassist does rip off alot of Matt Freeman's bass lines. It's kind of funny though....
