The Photo Atlas, 'No, Not Me, Never' (Stolen Transmission/ Morning After)

No, Not Me, Never
Critical Mass
Label: Stolen Transmission/ Morning After

by Julia Simon

These dance-punks exude At the Drive-In's blistering intensity, ¡Forward, Russia!'s wiry delivery, and Bloc Party's rhythmic pulse ("Cutback" could even serve as a comedown from the last's "Little Thoughts"). While it's never wholly apparent what Alan Andrews is going on about in his wordy vignettes (though most touch on drinking, dancing, chemical dependence, or paranoia), it doesn't matter when each nervously aggressive track, filled with both chiming and fuzzy guitar, reaches a blissful frenzy.
