Just today I found out that this band split up, which sucked. No-one seemed to mention it, nowhere. Anyway I decided to write this just so some more people might have heard of the if they do a re-union so i'll not have to wait 8 months before finding out!! Anyway I hadn't heard too much of this.

Anyway I hadn't heard too much of this band before I was given this CD for a present.

First impressions...... not good. The guys voice (he's sweedish) kinda grated on me and the first song is kinda mid-tempo. Listened to whole album, not good. I just plain didn;t like it on the first listen, everything kinda sounded the same.

After listening to this album a couple more times i've came to the conclusion that this this is a good album with some amazing moments. When I say amazing I mean AMAZING. I mean the song "Second Best" really is one of the best punk tunes i've heard in a long time. It starts with a kinda finger plucked intro then into a riff that just makes you swing air guitar like theres no tomorrow. The song then slows down a bit, going from heavy to soft intermittently, keeping attention and emotion all along the way. Then the song just launches in to the best middle eight ever!!! Dual guitars a go-go muting, ripping, playing off each other. I mean this is just so good!

The only songs I dont really like are the opener "Celestial Q&A" and "Perfect Sense".

If you like you punk semi-poppy, a bit slower and with thoughtful lyrics you shuld go check this out. Aw hell, if you like punk I would go check this out as well. I'll definately be checking out some more early stuff when I get some more puntos!

Great album!
But "The big knockover" is still the best they've made.

anything after No Straight Angles is pretty much off my radar. That album was rad... so is there live EP.

This is an odd album cause its not the typical punk rock NFAA, but its definately a step in a direction I would have liked to see go further instead of breaking up, but oh well. Second Best and Waste of Time are Amazing songs.

this CD is kind of alright but check their debut 'no straight angles' for balls to the wall speed of 'believers' - truely one of the greatest song ever or their second CD 'out of bounds' which is more melodic and song orientated (was released by revelation in the US) and has the classic 'Stranded'. They kind of lost the plot a bit after this and went a bit samey.
