Supersuckers, 'Get It Together' (Mid-Fi)

7
Get It Together
Critical Mass
Label: Mid-Fi

by Doug Brod

Though nothing here matches the wit of "Pretty Fucked Up" or "Rock Your Ass" (from 2003's criminally overlooked Motherfuckers Be Trippin'), these country punks can still craft a classy hook. Their seventh studio album balances extra-greasy riffs("What It Takes," "I Like It All, Man," and the Ramones-quoting title track) with cowpoke loping ("Paid") and a crushing Death Valley ballad ("Breaking Honey's Heart"). As you'd expect from 20-year road dogs, the playing couldn't be sharper. And plenty of lyrical quirks remain: On "Sunset on a Sunday," frontman Eddie Spaghetti compares his romantic neglect to blowing off his homework. So (im)mature.
