Time Again sounds as if they still spend all of their time out on the street but they’ve already been around the block once before. On album number two they don’t do much to get rid of the obvious Rancid comparison they garnered with their first album. If you play street punk and have a vocalist with a gritty voice who likes to swallow half the words on his lyric sheet, the comparison is made quickly. And most of the time deservedly. But seeing as Rancid takes years and years to come up with a new album, we need something to fill up the time in between. The guys that make up Time Again understood that well and have written an album chock full of bouncy bass lines, fast-paced rhythms and singalong choruses. It’s catchy, it’s fun and it’s about as original as wearing tight jeans to an Aiden show.

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.
