Lowest of the Low Nothing Short Of A Bullet

Get out your air drums, kids. This is a super-fun record that reminds me what I like about rock and roll. After a six-year hiatus, the reunited Lowest of the Low is reintroducing themselves to their fans old and new with this two-disc package. One disc features the band live, recorded in both Toronto and Buffalo. It is energetic and practically oozes sweat and booze from the confines of a roomful of bouncing punters. While live records are often just an excuse to create a buzz in the absence of anything new, Lowest of the Low rise above this with the inclusion of three new studio tracks on the second disc. With the same passion, the boys deliver bouncy, inspired rock and roll, minus the irony, aged with the proper amount of maturity. When played properly, Nothing Short of a Bullet will produce the righteous amount of noise complaints from the neighbours, as all good rock and roll should. (Universal)
