5.0 classicJustanothernimrod | August 29th 06

Give up the Ghost's second and final full length saw them build on their already successful formula of Hardcore Punk by adding a whole range of influences and sounds onto it. They showed their confidence and integrity on this much more mature album, because rather than just doing "another fast paced punk album" they played around with what can and can't be done in hardcore punk, while at the same time keeping their unique ability to write clever honest pop songs.
If you just listened to "single" 'Love American' you would think they hadn't progressed that much at all. But as this album goes on, they branch out of their inital sound sucessfully, like on 'Bluem' with it's wonderful "round" bassline.
Give up the Ghost split up a year later, but their presence is still being felt. The fact they quit while they were ahead makes them all the more special.
