Dillinger Four, 'C I V I L W A R' (Fat Wreck Chords)

7
C I V I L W A R
Critical Mass
Label: Fat Wreck Chords

by Joe Gross

These longtime Minneapolis hardcore-punk wisenheimers remember when scenesters thought Green Day were sellouts rather than holdouts, but they still value hooks over speed and have no aversion to carefully crafting their spew -- this pogo-ready slab has been promised since 2006. Maybe they were waiting for a tense election year: Politics fuel D4's fire these days as much as the revved-up mod riffs that power angry/clever songs like "Parishiltonisametaphor" and the double-time "The Art of Whore." Please vote, and then join them in the pit.
