"In Wallace's Shadow" CD (Goldenrod)
More San Diego emo. I liked Boilermaker's first album better than I liked this, but this still hurts. It still claws at the walls imprisoning feelings until its hands are good and bloody, the fingernails slowly ground away by the rough brick. It's still good - just not as good as the first album. Naturally, this means it's still better than 3/4 of the albums reviewed this issue.
