Let's see if I can fit this review into one sentence:

Old-guy Belgian, fun, angry, drinkin' punk.

That's it. I don't need to write anymore. Fourteen songs featuring simple chord progressions, gang vocals, walking bass-lines, angry shouting, and topics ranging from getting drunk and not liking religion or the government to general discontent. Pretty standard, really. And no, it ain't bad. Too many punk bands just don't have fun anymore. Just because you're angry doesn't mean that it's not fun.

Peace, love and unity / Doesn't really work for me, You preach the word for a better world / But you selfish bastards are what's making it worse.
C'mon, how much fun is that?

A lot of fun. That's how much.

This album gives us fourteen songs in forty-three minutes. Kind of a lot for a punk release, but whatever. If this is your bag, then be happy, 'cause it's a big one.

There's really not much else to say about it. Either you're going to like it, or not. I guess you'll have to see if you do yourself.

horrible derivative music in an already derivative genre. fuck these guys and the right-wingers they hang out with.

listen to the band they sound like what the review says which is pretty typical punk fucking rock.

I enjoy concise reviews too, but this is just vague. He would like the reader to believe that a review like this is of a short, blunt style, but rather it's just him being lazy.

You say concise like it's a bad thing. Why should this review take paragraphs to say what can be said in so much less? I liked it and I'ma check these guys out now.

"It's a record. Or CD, depending on what format you prefer. There's punk songs on it. They're quite long for punk songs. Punk is often fast, shouty and angry. Sometimes it's melodic, sometimes it isn't."

That's his next reviuew.

why are his reviews still posted? Are we supposed to believe this concise, vague review is more than just a cover for him being lazy?
