Holy shit this album destroys. Makes every modern rock band look like toothless fairies in any serious comparison, and these guys (well, 75% of them) are twice their age. It hardly matters that most of these songs were conceptualized throughout the band's career - what band doesn't do this? - this is vital, hard-hitting, dirty rock and roll performed by veterans in dying need of a rebirth, and on that level it not only succeeds, it writes the fucking blueprint for how a veteran rock band considered all but dead for the last, oh, 30 years should conduct their affairs. If this doesn't give modern rock the giant left hook to
At the Drive-In in•ter a•li•a
Put simply, in.ter.ali.a is fucking excellent. Remember when
Refused tried to come back, failed hard and sort of sullied
their reputation? This is, thankfully, not that.
in.ter.ali.a implements elements of their entire career and
heavily calls back to ROC in overall sound (with a teensy
smidge of Omar's guitar freakouts and more melodic Cedric from
TMV, but this is definitely ATDI Cedric) and yet 17 years
later, it's amazing how IMMEDIATELY vital they are to rock
music still to this day. Omar and Cedric are truly on fire
the entire record, Keeley does such a great job
