Even though Audacity has already cranked out a bunch of EPs and LPs in the decade they’ve been around, “Butter Knife” is my first encounter with these California-based garage-rockers.

Opener “Couldn’t Hold A Candle” makes for a very first good impression with its punchy rhythm, catchy hook and nicely distorted guitars. By the time “Hole In The Sky” comes around, I was sold. Problem with these bratty rockers is that for every “Hole In The Sky” or “Onomatopoeia”, there is a track that feels a little lukewarm. Take “Rooster” for example… you can’t say it’s a bad track but it just doesn’t make much of a lasting impression. What makes it all the more frustrating is that you know these guys can do better seeing as half the album is pure bliss…
