My review



To stand out, punk rock needs real aggression from the musicians and to have the greatest appeal, the music needs to be more than just thudding drums and guitars with all melody replaced with distortion. Avail hit the nail right on the head with this CD. I like it a lot.

Listen to the vocals on "N30" for an example of the band's involvement in the music.

The music too is interesting and varied, clearly the band has a lot of ideas and they make fine use of them.

I like every track on this album, the drumming on "Levelled" caught my attention as did "Invisible", "Bell", "Union" and "Old Dominion". "Bell especially shows that the Avail span a wider range than just narrow punk.

If you are into punk then you should have no hesitation over buying a copy of this CD.
