The Class Assassins You've Got It All Wrong

Since its ill-favoured inception, punk rock has shared a similar philosophy with folk, where both styles serve as music for the people, and when you look past the handful of vulgarity- or gimmick-dependent acts, you can discover a group that thirst for change and act as a voice for the victimized. Toronto, ON natives the Class Assassins are that group and they execute with great urgency and energy their brand of blue collar anthems, in the vein of street punk predecessors such as U.S. Bombs, the Briggs and the significant Sham 69. This sophomoric effort embodies the working class spirit and the gravelly vocal delivery is effective, and most notable, on the unapologetic "Empty Dollar" and the chant-laden "Outside Looking In," where as "Stop the World" makes for one of the album's most powerful tracks. You've Got it all Wrong acts as a black flag in a time where political remodelling is in great need and these punks aren't asking for it. They're demanding it. (Insurgence)
