Album Review

Though there is nothing groundbreaking or especially distinctive in the brand of punk played by the Subhumans, the band is certainly not short on energy. Like the U.K. Subs, the Subhumans take the standard guitar chords and snotty, life-sucks vocals and fashion them into sneering diatribes delivered at top velocity, even if the Subhumans aren't quite as distinctive as the Subs at their best.
