Review: Drive A – The World in Shambles

Rated:

3.5/5

For a movement that proudly flashes the anarchy symbol, radical punk inhabits a surprisingly constricted musical universe. The guitar sound and rhythm is essentially unchanged from what the Clash offered on their first album (U.K. version), while vocal style hasn’t changed significantly since before Billy Joe Armstrong got famous. Within those limits, Drive A does quite a lot, thanks to guitar and bass lines are as tuneful as they are propulsive. But it’s frontman Bruno, whose sneer is audible in every lyric, who carries the day, making revolution sound not just fun but the only reasonable alternative. J.D. CONSIDINE
