Brat Attack - Those Who Sow Sorrow Shall Reap Rage
By Ty TrumbullThe Brat Attack's method is a multi-pronged attack: jumping from raucous, straight-up punk, like album opener "Spark," to the D4-style pop punk of "Hey Harper, You Anti-Choice Homophobe...," before breaking into a song like "Prison Slave Labour," which wouldn't sound out of place on mainstream radio. Still, there's enough consistency that the album never loses sight of itself. Politics are hard-worn on sleeves with this group and an album insert thick with lyrics and explanations is the result. Luckily for all though, the Brat Attack never bash you over the head with their beliefs, despite the overtly political content of each song. The politics work best when the band put aside the straight-ahead, angry punk for hooks and melodies on tracks like "Lack of Compassion or Just Ignorance," allowing for the message to come through more clearly and with some substance.
