Shall We Skip to Excessive Celebration?

This album is only 14:36 long so this review will be very short, it’d probably be longer if I had read the 200-page novel that vocalist/lyricist Will Angelos has written to go along with it but I haven’t, anyway it’s furious screaming punk stuff with loud guitars and some very funky disco drums at times, one could almost dance to a lot of stuff here but then the song is over in like 40 seconds or something, I really don’t understand why you would want to make an album that only lasts 14:36 but then again I am not a hardcore punk rocker guy, anyway this is pretty damn good for what it is and I can listen to it twice on my way to work and twice more on the way home, I like all the songs but I don’t know what their names are because I lost the little booklet, and there’s too much screaming so I don’t know what they’re about, overall I like it a lot though. Also I think he pissed off Xian hardcore bands for some reason but I don’t really care about that. The end.
