The dudes that make up Cobra Skulls are back with their third album. This one’s called “Agitations” and on it you’ll hear more of that Against Me, Dead To Me, The Lawrence Arms kind of punkrock that these Nevada natives have made a name with for themselves over the past couple of years.

They’re off to a great start with the one-two punch that is “Six Degrees” and “Iron Lung”. A track like “On & On” is another solid punkrock tune with its catchy chorus and a driving rhythm. The problem with “Agitations” is that there are a couple of songs that are just too run-of-the-mill to make much of an impression, something that is accentuated only more by Peralta’s slightly monotonous voice. It doesn’t make “Agitations” a bad album but I thought there was gonna be more to love.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
