After three amazing singles, Boston's Aerosols unleash their debut full-length: a complete assault on the listener and the world on a whole.

Lyrically, the band constantly references pain and mental instability, turning depression into a political stance against the system for psychiatric treatment in songs like "Settle for Hell" and "The Weird Turn Pro," which slams Hunter S. Thompson for his suicide. Musically, they completely tear apart the listener, though they don't fall into the trap of relying on mere speed to berate their audience.

Slower, Black Flag-inspired songs like "God Is USA's Terrorist" use dissonant guitar riffs that creep out of the mix reminiscent of His Hero Is Gone, while in other parts the band sounds more like the under-appreciated Anodyne. Comparisons to Negative Approach or even No Comment are good, but are too obvious and sell the band short. The tracks run together with a hurried, anxious tone and that never lets up. If Ceremony were the band that introduced the youngest generation of hardcore to bleak, power violence-infused punk, then this band should be band to blow them out of the water.

The first pressing on this record sold out in less that 24 hours. Youth Attack! are currently getting a repress, which should be available shortly.

ordered my copy from YA today. Its insane how quickly that shit sells out, but most if not all bands on that label fucking destroy.

Yeah, youth attack is fucking stupid. I'll probably buy this when the repress comes though. Solid stuff.

Which isn't to say that you're not wrong, the small pressings of YA shit is ridiculous, especially considering how good all the acts they sign are.

I own a real copy. Also, the LP is garbage. Aerosols were made for 5 minutes singles and 8 minute long sets.

theonetruebill (February 2, 2010)

Question of the day is, who actually owns a physical copy? Anyone? Anyone? Thought so. Youth Attack is one of the only indie labels where I don't guilty for only having MP3s of most of their stuff.

This is good but not as immediately catching me as much as the singles. I'll have to give it another few listens.
