The Living End, made up of three blokes from Down Under, forks out gritty, crusty punkibilly at its best. The formula of tossing in a hellish double-bass bludgeoned at hyper speeds with traditional British punk overtures, has made for stellar arrangements that refuse to lose momentum. Its an engaging listen thanks to several courageous change-ups reeking of anything from ska to rock n roll – all which will certainly help in shaking the anticipated Green Day comparisons. Surprisingly, the lyrics tackle significant topics. Dont Shut the Gate, a rock tune touching on Australias strict immigration laws, and Revolution Regained reliving East Timors continuing struggle are smartly counterbalanced by quintessential beer-guzzling anthems like, Carry Me Home and Uncle Harry. They are sure to be a radio favorite.
