Product Notes

The vocalizing is incisive and obtuse. You'll need the lyric sheet. The inadequate lexicon of language impotently provides the following words to describe this sophomore body of work: Tense, jovial, driving, caustic, jeering, stainless, enigmatic.' --X This 21-song release is one of those CDs that penetrates your subconscious and grows on you. I keep humming the melodies from this mid-tempo rhythmic punk. A tinge of WIRE comes to mind when I crank this disc.' --Maximum RockNRoll The magic starts on track 6 ('Packet Switch'). The Husker Du-ish feel underscores the DIY production while a Ramones/Jerry's Kids influence permeates. Aside from 'Pro Football', Civil War II cleverly rehashes the requisite punk rants, adds wry social commentary ('Butch,' a song about our voyeuristic media) and explores wild inventiveness ('Daddy We Cloned The Cat' is a 21 second bombast while 'Unpopular' kicks off with a talk show caller proclaiming, 'Boston fans suck' followed by silence and then a laugh track superimposed over gruesome news reports). The explosive 'Nike Tattoo' is a scathing indictment of modern consumerism that continues on 'SYEM' (chorus: 'Spend your money'). 'Masterplan' is the closest to the Minor Threat/SSD style hardcore (chorus: 'You wanna be right'). Of the few songs with a guitar solo, there is only one without the Black Flag My War era dissonant thrashing. At a shade over two minutes, 'Pi' boasts a great riff and groove. A stand-out is the revved up cover of Devo's 'Beautiful World,' a sharp contrast to RATM's equally effective sedate version. Civil War II abounds with intelligent lyrics and raw passion. It's a keeper. --Marc Friedman (The Noise)
