Grey Britain sports some decidely non-punk maneuvers in the form of piano-concerto codas and unnerving sound effects that elevate the band from mere street-punk cliches. [Jun 2009, p.104]
It’s vital for the maintenance of Gallows’ present profile that they curb their enthusiasm for experimentation and pushing the envelope of aggressiveness to some degree, and by doing this sensibly, they’ve produced an album that’s big on surprises but that also ticks the essential boxes of heaviness and melody.
Trimmed down to a good 35-40 minutes, and with a producer like Kurt Ballou instead of the more polished-sounding Garth Richardson, this might have been the provocative, inflammatory second record that Gallows fans had hoped for. Instead we’re left with yet another young band whose reach far exceeds its grasp.
Sep 14, 2010This is the most brutal, angry properly punk album that's been released in a long time. Frank Carter sounds like Johnny Rotten, only angrier and the pace of the music is just incredible, I love this album. It is probably the most important punk/hardcore album in at least 5 years. This is true punk how its meant to be, it should also prove to people that bands like good charlotte are not and never will be punk, they're just posers. This is an angry, gritty and fast album, and thats how punk should be… Expand
