I'm sure all you people have at least heard of Horace pinker somewhere or another, but never really given any of their albums a full listen.

That is the main purpose for this review. To kinda spread the word about what I feel is one of the most underated bands in punk today.

After the semi successful album "Burn Tempe to the ground" was released in 1996, The band took a long break from touring...which had most people spreading rumors of a breakup. Not the case at all. When the band resurfaced in mid 2000 with a new EP "copper regret" and new full length in the works, HP had restored all faith in their longtime fans.

But anyway, enough of a band bio and on to the record. Its a little different for HP, but in a good way totally. A bit slower, than the 2 previous albums but still a great fuckin record and is becoming my favorite HP material so far.

This band still retains the melodic punk sound that a lot of bands are capitalizing on today, but HP still has that different edge to them and this record is no different. Songs like "south stanley place" "trajectory" and "clearer" show exactly why.

Well, long review short, awesome record...definitley my favorite punk album of the year. Actually all their albums rank pretty high on my list. definitley check them out for sure...any and all of their records just kick ass. also, expect a review of their latest full length "pop culture failure" coming soon....oh boy right?

He is probably thinking of that cheesy horror movie shocker...

HP is not one person...your just judging from that stupid video...They are one of the most talented bands to come along in a while. And I have to agree with the anonymous dude they have grown and matured a lot since "burn tempe"

It's ok, but nothing speacial really, sometimes their songs can be a bit boring...

I dont know if the comment below thinks horace pinker is one person, which is incredibly stupid. But i digress, Horace Pinker basically just started writing better music. This EP is perfect in its tempo, and rhythm. Its a great teaser for the pop culture failure full length despite the fact that it was recorded after the full length but released first.

The bassist from jawbreaker joined the band on this release. 'Pop culture failure' was one of my top 5 last year, its hands down a breakthrough for them. Amazing songwriting and consistency.

Also, for the comment below their video for cinema beer nuts was for a song that the lead singer didnt even sing on. Its not really a good idea of how they sound. They've made leaps and bounds since 'tempe'.
