General Rudie Cooling The Mark

Finally, GR has unleashed their first full-length upon the masses. The one word to sum up this disc is versatility! From the simple immediacy of "So Much To Live For" to the sweet sophistication of "Lion Of Judah," the band has never sounded better. Their trad-ska sound is in full swing and we all get to enjoy the ride. A nice mix of instrumentals and vocal numbers also adds to the variety. "Sunday Drive" is a dandy of a number that displays one of the bands many jazz-based weapons, and "Stay Tuned" is fit for a movie soundtrack. The vocal numbers are instantly catchy and will lodge into your brain for a prolonged visit, so just sit back and let it happen, you won't regret a single moment. (Stomp)
