Raised on a diet of Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Refused, Guns N
Roses, A.F.I, Rancid, and the Cure, LCA molded a punk rock sound that
will bring you to your knees before you throw yourself out a window.

"I'm spoiled. It's not fair I get this CD now to review and the
rest of you must wait 'til April 4th... Once, not too long ago, I
was playing a dumb game of hypothetically building a new band by using
members of other bands... y'know, one of those "wouldn't it be cool
if..." games. Wouldn't it be cool if some guys from Social Distortion
got together with some guys from the Dropkick Murphys, and maybe,
I dunno... showed all these screamo guys how you really incorporate
screams and back up vocals into a punk song? Wouldn't that be cool?
Imagine my suprise when I popped in the Lost City Angel's latest to
discover that's exactly what they were thinking. Wouldn't that sound
cool? This is how it's done. Incredible song construction on par with
Green Day's recent stuff, the right mix of "whoas" to make Pennywise
jealous... punk to it's core, and showing the veterans how it's done.
This is a must for 2005. If you don't pick it up kid, you'll see it
again next January with my best of 2005 list..."
