Gave it a 4 at first and would now give it all 5, but since it's not a "classic" - a 4.5. Superb album and has given me more emotional uplift than some said great post-rock bands. Really excellent stuff. Every song makes you want to love is just unbelievably redeeming for the soul and desperately makes you want to hear them in some cramped up little basement.
If Latterman fans already had enough offshoots to keep them satisfied, RVIVR is yet another of these newly-founded punk groups. Although less ballsy than Iron Chicís debut Not Like This, RVIVRís full-length release takes a more melodic and varied route to success. Formed by members of the Shorebirds, Hooky and Glue, and Latterman, RVIVR takes elements of each band and melds them into a polished and somewhat relaxed brand of modern punk.
