Album Review

There's a lot of continuity between the third Gone album and the first two — which might seem surprising because there was an eight-year hiatus and a change in two of the three players. The remaining member was Greg Ginn, and that's what made the difference. Ginn is the driving force behind Gone, and he knows what he likes — which in this case is hammering drums, a funky bassline, and squalling, bent guitar melodies.
