Album Review

Escape found Burning Heads broadening their punk sound, expanding the traditional elements to incorporate hardcore and even reggae stylings into their tried and true format, and introduced the group to the American audience in the process. Sounding like a cross between Suicidal Tendencies and Sublime, Burning Heads are easy to enjoy, offering fast-paced upbeat punk that overflows with memorable hooks that keep the music fresh. "S.O.S." stands out as one of the better tracks, taking a New Found Glory approach with singalong choruses that keep one's head bobbing with pleasure. The most memorable song is certainly "B@byLone By Skate" which finds the bandmembers abandoning their whole punk style and opting for a complete reggae sound, which they do exceptionally well.

Escape is a solid album that never manages to blow the listener away, but does entertain while it lasts. Unfortunately, the band's American debut drew very little attention, and Burning Heads faded back into obscurity shortly after releasing Escape. ~ Jason D. Taylor, Rovi
