One clear diversion from the previous sound of Dog Fashion Disco is the addition of two acoustic tracks Haunted Holiday and Chloroform Girl which might seem all sweet and innocent until you start uncovering their lyrical content! This album comes off more like a blood-drenched prom queen rather than a drugged up hooker in bondage, if that makes any sort of sense.
At times coming off like some deranged love child of Slayer and Mr. Luckily the band announced "Sex Offender" in February And while I welcome growth in the band and enjoy the new album, I do find myself missing the oddities at which these gentlemen can certainly bring to the table.
Lunatic was initially my obvious choice, clearly giving it's title a run for it's money, for this record's biggest hidden surprise while short but very memorable Epilogue made me what to hear more of where that track came from! Biography by Rune Once again, the chorus is amazing and in my opinion the best of them all.
Highly recommended to fans of Christmas and metal music!
Great album. All I can say is that this album is awesome I would have to agree with everyone elses reviews There are lots of new wave synth lines and sinister polka piano stabs sprinkled throughout the album too, giving it an insane charm. Polkadot is one of the best live bands in the world, energetic and undeniably infectious.
At first, Last Call In Jonestown sounded like a continuation of Sex Offender , featuring some solid material but being nowhere near as impressive as the band's debut record. Bungle or even Unexpect; a very quirky take on metal that is not afraid to experiment. As I mentioned in my review of that release, I found this single to be a bit out of place due to its somewhat generic chorus section and the whole approach to music making seemed out of place with the debut album.
Well, I guess that it's more like a disappointment by the standard that the band set with the release of their debut album Purgatory Dance Party.
