Album Review

Gang Green's second full-length release and first for Roadrunner imprint Emergo, You Got It did not vary much from the band's long-established musical pattern. For the "King of Bands," drinking beer (more specifically Budweiser, in keeping with their nickname), skating, and just being a general nuisance are the dominant lyrical themes on You Got It, while an energized hardcore buzzes in accompaniment, making a mockery out of any conceivable speed limit as the Boston punkers sonically graze speed metal.
