    Dereconstructed poses a challenge and stands defiant, and it works surprisingly well as the unexpected convergence of a number of long-running cultural traditions.

    Dereconstructed sounds like a continually exploding bombshell.

    Maybe the pace flags a little after a ferocious start--The Company Man is as pure a shot of adrenaline as a guitar band will release this year--but that's just a quibble about a terrific album.

    The songs are rigorously infectious. [Jul 2014, p.96]

    It’s a dirty-sounding album, full of scuzzy red-line guitars and overdriven vocals, but even all that speaker-busting grit doesn’t hide the alluring melodies Bains threads among the mayhem.

    The pacing of the album is questionable, and silly lines like “we got motherfucking internet” and proclamations of Southern living do get old by the record’s end. But these are nitpicking complaints of an otherwise fine rock record straight from Alabama.

    Dereconstructed can be fiercely intelligent, but more often it is frustratingly blinkered; his lyrics can be defiantly blunt, but they’re often elbowed out by music that is dumbly bombastic.
