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.
