Good Riddance - Bound By Ties of Blood and Affection



Released: N/A
Label:Fat Wreck Chords

Ballads From The Revolution is quite possibly the best record this band ever released and it will be hard to top that album. Good Riddance anyway try to make it with the new Bound By Ties of Blood and Affection, a collection of 14 hardcore punk anthems, some of the finest the band also wrote. After the record I mentioned above, with such releases as Symtoms Of A Levelling Spirit, the band has never been the same. Not in a negative way, but with some curious facts mixed all together ( the change of producers, from Ryan Greene to the duo Stevenson/Egerton; the addiction of the new drummer, David Wagenschutz, ex Kid Dynamite), took the band into a new direction: more hardcore and less melodic hardcore maybe. Or maybe it is just me. Bound By Ties of Blood and Affection anyway has all the potential that this band can give: fast packed songs, politically aware lyrics, and the social consciuosness of Russ Runkin. Songs like More Depalma, Less Fellini, Paean to the Enlightenment or There's no I in Team let see how Good Riddance are always developing their sound, even tough they still play hardcore. The record is one of the finest of hardcore I have heard lately, but I miss songs like Jeannie, Waste and the pro animal rights anthems that made me fall in love for this band. Great hardcore release, it's me who is getting old.
