Album Review

Whatever It Takes is a sideline project for Chris #2 of the notorious Pittsburgh punk band Anti-Flag, for whom he plays bass; as frontman for Whatever It Takes, he plays guitar and acts as lead yeller. This CD brings together two previous releases: the full-length Fistful of Revolution album and the eight-track Stars & Skulls EP, both of which were originally issued in extremely limited numbers (the latter came out only in a minimally packaged CD-R format, and the band only sold a few hundred copies before pronouncing it out of print). Both find the quartet carrying on in the same general vein as Anti-Flag, that of noisy but fairly melodic punk rock. Whatever It Takes is maybe just a bit less overtly political than Anti-Flag; while songs like "Stars and Skulls" and "Flesh Eating 9 to 5 Virus" both convey a fairly clear social message, others are a bit more artfully ambiguous, and that works in their favor. The acoustic guitar-based "I Swear This Is the Last Time" actually comes close to being downright introspective, and ends up sounding just a bit like the early Cure. Nice stuff.

Customer Reviews

Short Lived But Really Good

Whatever It Takes was a very good band. Never mind this guy these guys were awsome with shredding guitars. If this band stayed together they would have made some awsome stuff. Make sure to check out their latest. These guys rock!!!

great album

This album is amazing! Chris #2 does a great job on guitar and vocals. The best songs are probably "green light, yellow light, stop," "a fistful of revolution," and "stars and skulls."

True Punk ROck!!!!

Actual punk! other good true punk bands are Anti-Flag, The Havoc, and Sum 41!!!!!!!
