'Bright Flashes', which comes straight off the heels of 2002’s momentous 'End Transmission' (record of the year, methinks, as it catapulted Snapcase into uncharted territory…) and features tracks that were cut from 'Transmission'’s recording sessions (during which time the band actually had over 100 minutes-worth of music) as well as remixes of three songs that did make it on that album (“Believe/Revolt”, “Ten A.M.”, and “Exile Etiquette”), is by no means a “throw away” record. On the contrary, what 'Flashes' offers is the missing chapters to the progressive hardcore band’s epic tale of a dystopian society in the year 2071 and the downtrodden masses’ attempts at revolting against their oppressors (for a more detailed description, see my review). Songs that continue this concept like the powerful, conflicted “Skeptic”, “New Academy”, and “Dress Rehearsal” (THE standout track) fit in perfectly with the band’s vision and sound.
