It’s great to see that Anti-Flag’s still kicking government ass and taking names. They were on heavy rotation on my playlist back in the day when I was really in the Philly punk scene, and they’re still bringing the heat.
“The Neoliberal Anthem” is a great sing-along track that sounds like it’s off of AFI’s December Underground album. Speaking of sing-alongs, AF has always had a high sing-along-ability in their tracks, and it’s still very evident through this album.
They’ve stayed true to the “against authority” nature of their music, and they still make you want to pogo with your fist in the air. Poppy instrumentation with a tough edge and upbeat vocals.
For a few minutes, I felt as though I was back in the 90′s… And that’s not a bad thing in punk rock terms. It’s not shoe gazing music… It’s get in the pit, sing with the band and whip some ass music. Nothing groundbreaking, but good, solid punk rock.
