Another recommendation from the Surly Giant..

That's right, folks. Your favorite Grumpy Gus, Matt, has written you a wonderful new review this week. How does one write a scathing yet complimentary review all at once? Read on my friends, read on..

Fucked Up - David Comes To Life

I wasn't really into this record when it came out, but like the band itself, it has grown on me. Sandwiched somewhere in between post rock, hard core, and pop punk, this album explores a lot of territory. Tired of Pink Eyes constant brutal yelling? That's cool - they let some one else sing on the next song. Tired of all this Glen Branca guitar build up? Calm down dude! The next song is super poppy and fun! Are you whining about this song being to slow? Geez, okay, okay it gets faster right...Now! Following in the tradition of Zen Arcade or Double Nickles On The Dime, David Comes To Life is as ambitious as it is challenging.
