Suburban Hostage – A Sorry State

23 Dec


Suburban Hostage
A Sorry State

Suburban Hostage has been around for several years but haven’t had a full record out until now. A Sorry State is 13 tracks of melodic punk which comes in two flavors, some tracks being fairly poppish and some being a bit harder. The pop tracks didn’t do much for me, they’re just not particularly interesting. The material that gets away from that a bit is slightly better, even if it didn’t excite me too much either. This isn’t the worst record I’ve ever heard and there are plenty of pop-punk bands that I’d rather throw a brick at, but this isn’t anything special either. The main problem is that the whole package is a bit generic. Nothing here really stands out from the whole Good Riddance/Lagwagon sound you’ve heard a thousand times before. Maybe next time.
