Album Review

On their first full-length release, the Hurt Process played a formulaic brand of rock common to the late '90s and early 2000s — that is, a blend of punk, hardcore, metal, and pop; much alternation of all-out crunching passages with more subdued, contemplative ones; and vocals that ran the gamut from a throat-full-o'-razor-blades growl to high, yearning sweet harmonies. It might not be too distinctive, but it's tight and well done here, almost slickly so.
