Methadones Career Objective

Fortunately for those who can recall Chicago’s bourgeoning punk scene of yesteryear, and for all the new comers, the sounds of the Methadones pound it out and shake it up. Career Objective, the band’s sophomore release displays a natural progression into a more established and stronger songwriting foundation, without tarnishing the inherent juvenile behaviour. Vocalist/guitarist Dan Schafer, former Screeching Weasel/Riverdales bassist, has once again shown that he is prime front-man material and that his current efforts make his previous accomplishments pale in comparison, even with consideration to Sludgeworth. And regardless of the band’s Ramones and Teenage Head punk rock diplomas, the Methadones are blazing their own path and breaking young girls hearts everywhere. Thus, Dan Schafer need not worry about his, "Premature Mid-life Crisis.” (Stardumb)
