"Captain My Captain" CD (Chainsaw)
Now this is something which rocked my world. It doesn't sound like the Ramones, it isn't pop-punk, it just fucking rocks unlike any other album I've heard during the making of this issue. Maybe it's the blunt honesty and painfully revealing lyrics (witness "she only loves me when I act just like she does and that's emotional blackmail" in "Uncle Phranc"), or maybe it's the guitars which act more like knives and clubs than musical instruments, slashing and bludgeoning their way through these songs. This album utterly, unconditionally rules.
