Sixer is ex-Ann Beretta, and they don't try to hide it. From the first second the singer opens his mouth, you hear the definite Ann Beretta sound [which means you're also getting a mixture of the Clash, Rancid, and all of AB's other influences]. Leer, the singer, sounds like he smokes at least 3 p.

Sixer is ex-Ann Beretta, and they don't try to hide it. From the first second the singer opens his mouth, you hear the definite Ann Beretta sound [which means you're also getting a mixture of the Clash, Rancid, and all of AB's other influences]. Leer, the singer, sounds like he smokes at least 3 packs a day, and that just adds to the ferocity that the band gives. "Truth Hurts" opens the EP, and just plows through like a steam train in two and a half minutes. "Farmington" is next, and is a touching song about how he misses his old town and his friends. It's a bit of a slower number, and there seems to be a lot of passion evident. "Thin White Line," a story about life on the road, could pass as a Rancid song, except Tim Armstrong could never sing half as good as this. "Fallen Angel" keeps the energy up, with some catchy, sing-a-long choruses. Closing out the CD is "Sugar Water," which starts off as an a capella-into-folksy number, but soon kicks it up a notch. It sounds like there's about 10 people singing all at once, which projects the whole family attitude that this band seems to have. As the song slowly fades out, you're left waiting for more. This is really solid gritty punk rock, that will appeal to Ann Beretta fans and new fans alike. Look for a bright future for Sixer.
