Yup. Here we are again. Between my actual job, paying attention to my wonderful wife, freelance shit, and actual shits, I am fucking busy, man. Yet, the onslaught of albums to review doesn’t slow down. As my day job is being a PR guy, I feel a lot of sympathy for all the PR people who try to think of new ways to tell me they are sending me a pop-punk record. I know I could post a series of reviews that are just unwanted dick-pics my friends get on OkCupid (that may be a future feature), and they aren’t reading anything more than a paragraph, I feel a haiku review is good enough. Here we go:
