Reseña de álbum

Taking the idea of a concept album to the next level, the always prolific F****d Up went the distance for David Comes to Life. Leading up to this 78-minute double album, they released four 7” singles (packaged with eight unreleased songs related to the story), and a compilation record titled David’s Town, for which guest artists accompanied the Canadian punks as they pretended to be various fictional Brit-pop bands. This concept was a long time coming, and after writing a few songs about the main character David Eliade on previous singles “David Christmas" and “David’s Plan,” the band fleshed out a full story line from his perspective. In the fictional town of Byrdesdale Spa UK, David has a humdrum life working at a light bulb factory, and finds an escape by falling in love with a communist rebel rouser, only to find out later that she has died in a terrorist bombing and that he has a lot of emotional turmoil to face. Of course, like all good Who, ELO, and Kinks rock operas, the plot becomes convoluted, even if you are able to decipher the words. Pink Eyes’ forceful, monotone, bulldog growl makes this especially difficult. Still, even if you can only pick apart specific lyrical fragments, the themes work on a universal scale as well as they do in a literal context. And up against these brick-house arrangements, the script is just an added bonus. The playing is versatile and volatile, with new member Young Governor (Ben Cook) adding to the wall of distortion created by fellow guitarists Gulag (Josh Zucker), and 10,000 Marbles (Mike Haliechek.) Guest backing vocalists Kurt Vile, Jennifer Castle, and Madeline Follin give the songs a hint of melody, but otherwise, David Comes to Life is the musical equivalent of a bullhorn and a blender, and all the more awesome for it. The 18 songs on the album are all in the heavily layered, chamber-hardcore style established on Chemistry of Common Life, but F****d Up is taking the idea to the furthest reaches, and somehow pulling it off.

David Comes to Life.

Who could ask for a better album? Dynamic Happy-Hardcore. Fierce male vocals. Sunny female vocals. A four Act Dramatic Musical. Couldn't ask for anything more. 9/10.

by the balls

I'm an old man (44 yrs old), and this is one of the first punk bands I can't stop listening to since Husker Du. I listen to this album over and over again when I work out. Over and over again. Ship of Fools over and over again.

Instant classic

It's been out less than a month, but I don't feel like that headline is jumping to conclusions.

This album has, pound for pound, more moments that just give me chills than any album in recent memory. That's especially impressive considering the album's length.

Here's how good it is: I was listening to David Comes to Life on my iPod while cleaning out my nasty soap-scummed bathroom, and it made the task almost fun.

Like the Ramones and Sex Pistols were for the 70s, Black Flag for the 80s, Nirvana for the 90s, this band is making the classic punk rock for today

While Canadian punk provocateurs F****d Up play aggressive and incendiary music, that's hardly where their desire to stir up trouble begins and ends. The group strays far from the standard template of four-four punk stomp, incorporating extended instrumental workouts, unusual arrangements, and lengthy experimental passages along with the furious guitars and ranting vocals. While F****d Up have paid homage on record to pioneering anarchist movements and creative and political troublemakers of all...
