Hates Panacea 12″

This band has been around for a long time—that’s the good part of this review. This EP isn’t as bad as their last 7″—that’s the so-so part of this review. This records isn’t as good as their earlier releases—that’s the bad part. The pop-punk sound and almost falsetto vocals here are too close to new wave, but there are some good lyrics and a couple of cuts that rock out pretty hard (“Punk 1301″ and “What Am I Living For?”).
