    Trash Talk continue with not reinventing the wheel, and they do so effectively--it grinds, it pummels, and it's tailor-made for another generation of youth to get their circle pit on.

    Trash Talk are still far from a pop group, and the album features some highly destructive moments in its 22-minute span – but unfortunately, 119 features too many weak spots of lukewarm punk that suggest the group is beginning to slip away from the fully realized and perfectly balanced sound the group was just starting to master.

    While the group's penchant for humid power-dirges threatens to sink 119 in its middle, they're unbeatable--but only when they skip the accoutrements and just bang away at high speed.

    About seven tracks in, 119 settles into a series of mid-tempo jogs that fail to really go anywhere.

    For the majority of the other songs Lee Spielman runs the show, screeching street-sick lyrics about the crime-ridden area surrounding their Sacramento practice space.

    An album that is, at best, a dilution of the real experience it's trying to capture.

    Plenty of nightmare visions of Skid Row LA, but really no fun at all. [Jan 2013, p.93]

    Trash Talk's speed punk is the musical equivalent of the third can of Red Bull: a great idea at the time, but may well produce a headache after. [Dec 2012, p.113]
