Having heard nothing from Dan Cribb’s new project before, I didn’t know what to expect from the former The Decline frontman and his Isolated buddies. Turns out that on their debut full-length these Aussies play the kind of punkrock tunes that brightened up my days back throughout the 90’s.

There’s nothing earthshattering about the songs that make up “As We Drift Apart”. I mean, we’ve all heard Lagwagon and the likes before. But the guitars are nice and crunchy, the drums sound great and Cribb has a knack for writing memorable hooks. They even threw in a couple of tasty guitar solos to round things out. Not too shabby at all!

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.
