The politically charged band Anti Flag is back with their third full length album. Underground Network is the band's first full length on Fat Wreck Chords. Obviously Fat Mike liked these guys enough to land them on the label. When you take a listen to Underground Network for the first time, the thing you'll notice the most is the production. Its miles up there compared to A New Kind Of Army. A New Kind Of Army in everyone's mind was a good album, but it always sounded like it cost them $5 to record it. The album had that muddy sound to it that turned allot of people off. Fortunately this time around, Anti Flag finally has an album that matches their sound live. Anti Flag really hasn't changed that much, but with this album it seems that they're sticking with their hardcore roots more than anything. My favorite track on here is the title track which has great lead guitar spots and excellent chanting vocals which are two things that Anti Flag have always been known for. Don't expect me to get into politics for this review because thats not what this is about. It doesn't matter what I think-its what you think thats important. Anti Flag is one of the few bands today where you won't hear them singing about girls, its all about unity and anti-government messages and I imagine thats always how its going to be. I though the song Seattle Was A Riot (from the Fat 5 comp) was one of the best Anti Flag songs to date, but unfortunately there really isn't one song on here that matches that one. Listening to this over and over I just found myself thinking that A New Kind Of Army or Die For The Government for that matter are better than this new one. Don't get me wrong, this is a decent album and I'm sure Anti Flag fans and others will definitely dig this, I just enjoyed their previous work more.

It's a good album and all, but some of the songs seriously rub me the wrong way. It's not as good as A New Kind Of Army but it's definately better than Die For The Government. Great lyrics though (minus Kill Fascists)
