"Friends forever ***ing each other’s ***-friends," "Back home they think I’m queer, but no one’s yet to notice here," and "Hot boys with toys on their arms don’t mean no harm / They merely mean to impress, to show you what they undress." With lyrics like those, you wonder what the hell is going on in the minds of the 5 members of Some Girls. But thats not a bad thing. ITS A GOOD THING. Some Girls, consisting of Wes Eisold(American Nightmare/Give Up The Ghost), Justin Pearson(The Locust), Rob Moran(Unbroken), Chuck Rowell(Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower), and Sal Gallegos(Secret Fun Club), have made an all out balls to the wall EP with The DNA Will Have Its Say. Its spazzy, reckless, in your face hardcore music without all the bull*** machoism of other idiotic hardcore bands. First off props to Wes who strikes gold with whatever he touches. The man will be remembered in 10 years time as one of the greatest frontman in hardcore and music history. So what does Wes bring to the table this time? More bone crushing vocals and completly bizzare and clever lyrics to back them up. Wes always had great lyrics in AM/GUTG, but with Some Girls, he just takes it to the next level. The music that accompanies Wes is just mindblowing. I don't know if I should mosh to it or grab a girl and have sex in the bathroom. Its that damn intense. Justin Pearson never ceases to amaze with his beatiful bass work. Chuck and Rob continue their onslaught of guitar which they have been doing amazingly and in this EP it shows. With stands out as well is the drumwork of Sal. He slays nearly all the other competition (I say nearly because we cannot forget that Gabe Serbian is the greatest drummer as of right now). Lyrically like I said, this EP is just straight up downright dirty and fun. Guns, Sex, and Drugs dominate the theme of this album more so than anything else. The tracks continue to come at you and never let you really recover from whats going on. Nazi Rodeo and A Sick Cult are probably the best tracks on here. And if that were not enough, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs makes a guest appearance on the title track which is just amazing. Its also important to note that the guys do not try to reinvent the sound of their other respective bands. It does have some of its influences, but mainly, this is Some Girls. One minor complaint is that its too short, but in a way thats a good thing. Leaves the listener wanting more. One reason I think Some Girls is so damn good is because they break the "rules of how hardcore should be played". Instead we get something that is so refreshing from the other overrated hardcore acts like Terror, Throwdown, etc. and intelligent lyrics other than "Respect Me" or "We Are A Brotherhood" type of crap. This EP is just downright dirty, nasty, fun, sexy, you know what. Its every sin you can mix in with it. Its a sinners EP. Just straight naughty naughty fun. What I love more about it is that this is just a side project for most of these guys. If you love this EP, go pick up their other albums now. You won't regret it. I mean, what more could you ask for. Guns, Drugs, Sex, Hardcore, and Justin Pearson. Cheers, You ***s.

I don't understand whats so superb about this cd. Sure its good, its fun and all that. But its a total of like 6 minutes long, and 3 of the songs run directly into each other. It's all fairly routine.
