The Bronx, 'The Bronx (III)' (White Drugs/Stay Platinum/Original Signal)

The Bronx (III)
Critical Mass
Label: White Drugs/Stay Platinum/Original Signal

by Mikael Wood

This is the third time these brash Los Angeles bombers have released an album titled The Bronx, but don't think they're scraping the bottom of their metallic punk recycling bin: Here they dial down the Black Flag–derived chaos of The Bronx (I) and (II), unleashing sharper melodies and boogie rhythms that Axl Rose might've admired before getting cornrows. That said, singer Matt Caughthran's juvie attitude still defines tunes like "Past Lives," on which he admits, "Maybe in the next life I'll be a hero, not a criminal."
