Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-12-14 
Awesome, lo-fi 70’s influenced West Coast punk often played at hardcore speed. Contains ex-members of the Clorox Girls and some band called the Observers. Very durable stuff that has vintage production, tons of great riffs & attitude. Will go well with Peligro Social, Radio Birdman, early Buzzcocks.

(1) Pointless, “ready in the studio?” intro.
((((2))) Fast, jumpy lo-fi punk ‘ala Buzzcocks
(((((3)))) Energetic & raucous. Good stuff.
((((4))) Slow then fast & spastic. Classy & classioc punk rawk. Like some lost track from a “Killed By Death” or “Bloodstains Across...” compilation band
(((5))) Twangy,, rockin’ very direct vocals and kind of poppy.
(((((6))))) Really fast chords at hardcore speed with 70’s punk vox.
((((7)))) Jumpy, caffineated, poppy punk with lots of bashed out chords.
((((8)))) Swaggery, lots of good drum work. Similar to Radio Birdman
(((((9))))) High-pitched vox, same fast tempo with a bit of sax and some GREAT tempo changes.
(((10))) More quick tempoed punk wildness.
((((11)))) Lots of fast strumming, very direct vox, pulsating bass.
((((12)))) Short, 60’s style surf & twang with a random voice. Cuts out at -00:42
