YES!! This release from Local heart throbs TheCore is just what I needed to hear right now! Passionate vocals over some catchy ass jingly jangly noodling guitar work, all layered on top of thickly thumping bass and drum work, with plenty of face slashing, hard hitting riffs thrown in for good measure. And it's catchy too! :-) Sounding sonically miles above and beyond their previous release Mind Your Demons, this CD is really fucking good, with standout tracks like Meet Me At Nipseys, NoLa, and Let Them Eat Cake highlighting what this band is all about - great vocals, catchy music, and some really cool sounding lyrics! I wish my copy of this came with a lyrics sheet, but whatever. Minor complaint at best, like mentioning that When Will We Learn sounds A LOT like Seeing Double At The Triple Rock by NOFX. ;-) Some of these songs I've heard played out live numerous times, but some of these songs on here I think I'm hearing for the first time - Rad! TheCore redid the song they had on that Punk Rock Heart Transplant compilation that came out a while ago (Scene Kid Sacrilege) and the version on here just smokes that earlier release. These songs are such a fantastic sign of the bands musical progression that I'm anxious to see what's coming from them next. Great release by TheCore. Kudos Gentlemen - Kudos!
