I'll do this as well, although I pretty much blow at reviewing. More new music one way or the other .

Flippin' hell, what an insane album. Always good, i like to be kept on my toes

I'm not much of a ska person so when the horns blasted in i prepared myself for disappointment. Wasn't a fan of the vocals either. That said as the album went on the vast scope of what they play was unveiled and it's clear they have a ton of influences which i always appreciate. It's a loud album sure but there's catchy moments in there too and a ton of ideas.

I won't rate it yet, first listen n' all, but it's definitely getting another play, probably several.

The Flaming Tsunamis - Fear Everything [2006; Kill Normal Records]

Before getting on to the review, I have to agree on the Mr. Bungle comparison. It's the first thing that came to mind when listening to the opening track, The Ritalin Conspiracy. It reminded me of Girls of Porn.

One Sentence Review: The Flaming Tsunamis' hardcore record does without the frightening disposition common to the genre to create something surprisingly light, varied, often eclectic, and niche unique. 8.8/10

Comments: I don't enjoy hardcore music, though there are times when truly inspired bands such as Refused, ****ed Up, and Alexisonfire make me think twice. The Flaming Tsunamis will, from this point on, be the reason why I will never say that again. "Fear Everything" takes you to unconventional places, yet never feels too experimental, nor does it outlast its welcome. For something truly unique, catchy, and worth the entirety of your time, listen to The Flaming Tsunami's "Fear Everything."

Notable tracks: Bird-Watching And Vice Versa, Corpse Disposal For Dummies, World of Chaos.

I'm going to have to listen again before I can give a verdict.
