Album Review

Gritty, working-class, melodic punk rock (that sounds more from the early-'80s Cali scene than its watered-down followers) abounds on Rumors and Headlines, One Man Army's third album. At their best, the band's crunchy guitars evoke the Descendents or, like on the straight-up, singalong rock of "Have Nots & Heartbreak," the Ramones. But, Rumors and Headlines is a little patchy — songs like "Leave Me Alone" quickly fade from memory and the chorus and handclaps on "Casualty" push the listener's patience. Still, when One Man Army is great, they're really great. "S.O.S." is a masterful piece of emotional Buzzcocks power pop that would tear up the punk stage.

Song Titles

Great album. The song titles on iTunes are mixed up, though. The actual titles of the songs in sequence are: 1. Victoria 2. It's Empty 3. SOS 4. All Night Long 5. Have Nots and Heartbreak 6. Leave Me Alone 7. Casualty 8. Next Generation 9. She Wants Me Dead 10. Here We Are 11. Rotting in the Doldrums 12. Sleeper You can fix these if you buy the whole album, but watch out if you're just picking songs.

Fun As Hell

I toured with One Man Army for a short period as a roadie for Agent 51, and I can say that these guys are top notch musicians live and in the studio! I generally don't write reviews for bands but I made an exception here because I truly believe anyone who likes and appreciates street punk should own at least one ONE MAN ARMY record. Why? Great classic melodic choruses, goes great with the Clash, and music/lyrics that really have something to say that can back it up with exceptional songwriting. If you can find it, also check out "Dead End Stories", their best work to date in my opinion. Clash comparisons are obvious, but somewhere Joe Strummer is smiling because this is the band that finally got it "right".

Awesome!!

It's rare that I like a band (or a CD) enough to write a review, but this entire CD is awesome (from start to finish). Every song makes you want to dance around, and sing at the top of your lungs. The only disappointment is that they only have this one CD (I would've loved to have more from them), but it is a truly fantastic opus. On a side note, iTunes has all but the last song mislabeled. So, you will have to go in and fix that.
