On their first new album in 17 (!) years and 15 years after their ‘final show’, Huntingtons pull out all the stops and have come up with an engaging mix of everything from mumble rap and grime to techno with just a bit of punk rock.
I mean, it’s the Huntingtons we’re talking about here. So instead of picking death (Muerto) or jail (Carcel), these Baltimore natives went with what they know best: Rocanrol. Or as they call it, Ramonescore.
Well, that’s actually not entirely fair. Cuts like ‘Too Old To Care’, ‘The Innocent’ and 'Things Are Gonna Get Better' may be pure-bred Ramonescore tunes, but songs like ‘The Slammer’ (complete with a nudge to Iron Maiden) see these guys occasionally branching out to a more punk ‘n roll sound that’s as dirty as the floors of most basements these guys have played shows in somewhere in the past 25 years. Whichever route they choose to barrel down, they pull it off with remarkable ease.
