No Use For A Name Hard Rock Bottom

If you will grant the prolific No Use for a Name anything, it would be that they are consistent. While their label-mates are experimenting with adding hardcore and slower pop-punk influences to their mix, NUFU is sticking to the formula that has always worked for them and, to be fair, continues to. There is nothing remarkable about this album from a critical standpoint, with no major evolution in sound or lyrical content, but nevertheless the band continues to release hook-filled speedy punk as it always has and likely always will. Not a groundbreaking album by any means, but a comfortable album from a staple of Californian punk rock. (Fat Wreck)
