This is hardcore in a form I love, which also seems to be difficult to find these days unless you know what you're searching for. It's party hardcore -- it rules! Now I'm not going to act like I know much about this vein of hardcore, as I don't, but it doesn't mean it should go missed whatsoever. .


This is hardcore in a form I love, which also seems to be difficult to find these days unless you know what you're searching for. It's party hardcore -- it rules! Now I'm not going to act like I know much about this vein of hardcore, as I don't, but it doesn't mean it should go missed whatsoever.

Perhaps it should be titled bent-edge, as it's pretty much the opposite of straight-edge hardcore, but then again... It's hard to really write about 12 tracks of fast, loud, in-your-face yet positive hardcore played in just under 18 minutes that isn't here to define a new form of hardcore or anything. Razzle Dazzle is nothing more than a few guys from Detroit, Michigan rocking the fuck out.

If you like Municipal Waste, old-school Beastie Boys, positive music, a reminder of the `80s (despite this being a few months old), getting drunk...you should probably check this out. It's not going to change your life (well, it'll probably make getting wasted even crazier), but it sure does rock.

P.S. It's worth buying some strings for your air guitar; this'll bring it back out of the closet.

Shame they put a remix of 'Ignorance Is Bliss' instead of the video version on youtube.

Pretty sweet hardcore to listen to before going out on a Friday night or whatever and the lyrics are fucking priceless.

i love this fucking band. easily my favorite hardcore band still doing their thing right now.

im so sick of hardcore about straight edge and messages and all that holier-than-thou bullshit. these guys are are basically the hardcore equivalent to Sublime; smoking dope, sleeping all day, eating waffles, going on bike rides. def a lot like old Beastie Boys mixed with a little pissed HC a la Kids Like Us.

you tube them and watch their CBGB performance. the kids don't know whether to two-step or light up a fat blunt. i love this shit.

I really like this record. I thought their older stuff was kind of lame and gimmicky, but this record is really fun and awesome.

ps- I wanted to review this, too late.
