"Seeking Refuge" CD (Malicious Vinyl/Capitol)

Lessee ... hmm. New Excel. Nine songs. Lyric sheet enclosed. HR of Bad Brains fame wrote and sang on "Take Your Part Gotta Encourage." Photo of Tony Alva skating a half pipe inside. Um, maybe I'm not the right person to review this disc. It doesn't hold my interest. To me, it's the musical equivalent of those Hollywood summer blockbuster movies like "Bad Boys" or "Die Hard 2." Lots of explosions, macho posturing, same plots over and over and over, not too much depth, done to death. Good musicianship but no direction. Safe. If you enjoy "Seeking Refuge" in the same old mosh music, then this CD is for you. (JOSH)
