With 10 of 12 tracks coming in under two minutes and the band making
minimal use of chords, you could easily be misled into thinking you've
heard this album thousands of times before. But actually, you haven't.
Dark Thoughts finds some separation from the pack that’s linked
above by virtue of being effectively straightforward in a genre that
tends to grow stagnant whenever anyone’s foolish enough to attempt the
feat. So many bands have tried and failed miserably at songs that are
frequently (and unfairly) categorized as Ramones-core and while Dark
Thoughts certainly embraces an archetype, it does so with an infallible
mixture of venom and pure feeling.
Every song on Dark Thoughts would be a worthy single but the record
functions its own standalone entity as well; Dark Thoughts is a sublime
piece of insanely well-informed genre work that skews as close to Fix My
Brain as it does Rocket to Russia
