Punk: Year in Review 2010

8. The Menzingers Chamberlain Waits (Red Scare Industries)
Scranton, PA four-piece the Menzingers have a knack for writing songs that are as memorable as they are morose, penning the catchiest songs of anguish and doubt since the Alkaline Trio wrote Goddammit in 1998. Their signature dual vocals, pounding rhythms and Johnny Marr-inspired guitar leads are captured perfectly on Chamberlain Waits. Tom May and Greg Barnett's voices brilliantly slide from a haunted croon to a broken wail. As heartbreaking as these vocal performances are, don't be discouraged ― creative lead guitar work, gang vocals, and often danceable drum beats make this record an incredibly fun listen.

Love this band so much! But I think you mixed up the bass player and the drummer.

Too much "lo-fi"

Also, Bad Religion should be in here.

So...was Bad Religion nixed because they are an older band? "Dissent..." was one of their best albums for sure. 'Only Rain' alone is worth a mention. Also, no Swans? No Grinderman?
