Album Review

After a bit of a hiatus, Aussie punk band the Living End returned in 2008 with White Noise, an album that experiments a bit with new sounds but also seems to hang right on the edge of what they had been doing previously. The album opens with "How Do We Know," a piece not far from Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" in tone and delivery, though the guitar is slightly changed. "Raise the Alarm" makes the band (and especially frontman Chris Cheney) come out as a knockoff of Bad Religion, with a little less speed. The title track starts to show more divergence, with a bit of an emo sound leading the band into a short series of lighter pieces, ending abruptly after the ska-infused "Waiting for the Silence" as the group transitions back into a growling guitar format. With its constant switching of styles and tempos, the album could be a bit hit or miss for most listeners. There will be a couple of excellent tracks for anyone, but those tracks will differ for everyone. Though the experimentation is nice to hear, one hopes that the band will stick with only one or two formats on future releases.

Customer Reviews

Finally!

I thought this record would never be released in the states, so I payed a lot for an import CD. Still, I don't regret it because this is the best music The Living End has made to date. No filler. Not a weak track to be found. And a steal at $5.99! Do yourself a favor. Buy it!

This album could of made them in the sates!

I'm don't know why it took so long but I agree that this was one of the best albums by the band. I also imported the album on CD and vinyl. Was well worth the price. If you by something else other than this album your wasting your money.

Unreal

This album is almost better than their first one. It's close. I can't stand that they don't tour the u.s. ever. What a shame cause this album is good one!

Australian punkabilly band the Living End started out jamming together and playing covers under the name Runaway Boys (after the Stray Cats song).
