Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-01-15
Really good 80’s punk from Hagerstown, Maryland. Does a great job of mixing 60’s twang, 70’s punk attitude and sometimes 80’s hardcore speed. Tough sounding. Comparable to Iggy fronting the Wipers.

((((2))) (FCCs “fucking” sung once)
((((3)))) Awesome, fast & twangy rockin’
(FCCs “bullshit” sung once)
((((4)))) TOO MANY FCCs – SKIP IT!
((((6)))) Twangy, very midwestern sound and all the way rockin’.
((((7)))) Fast and pretty much hardcore ‘ala MDC.
((((8)))) Dirty sounding r n’ r fused punk rawk.
(((((9))))) Surfy/spy movie twang with a paranoid and sarcastic (?) lyrical tone.
(((((10))) More twangy, (FCC “shit” sung once)
(((((11))))) Ace cover of the Stooges classic so obviously “stooge-y” you’d think it was an outtake from Ann Arbor in ’71.
(((((12))))) Sharp guitar tone and plenty of attitude (FCC “fucking” and “fuck” each sung once)
(((((13))))) TOO MANY FCCs – AVOID!
((((14)))) More Iggy worship. NOT FCC FRIENDLY play after 10pm!
((((15)))) (FCC “fuck”, sung once, “fucking” sung twice) Plays the riff of “Sweet Home Alabama” then goes total punk rock bad-assery.
((((16))) TOO MANY FCCs- AVOID!
((((17)))) Straight up punkish, Iggy-ifed hard rock. So much Iggy he even sings “looking for a real cool time”
(((18)) Basic 80’s um…”rock” like (Paul Collins) Beat or the Plimsouls. Not bad but sorta “there” and “dated”.
(((19))) Anti-Columbus rocker. Works better lyrically than musically as it’s a little too “Springsteen”-ish to really 'rock'.
(((((20)))) Nicely fused big guitar work out with yet more Iggy/John Doe-ish vocals and some cool backing choruses.
