The giddy debut album from Brooklyn band Fang Island is filled with bruising guitars, bratty vocals and lovely harmonies. The delightfully raucous single "Daisy" is a must-download — trash-pop in the best possible way.

Apparently the maxim they use to describe their sound, this seems like a pretty apt summation of their brash, enthusiastic pop-punk-metal. The first few listens fell completely flat for me and it was 'shelved' until one track came up on shuffle and it blew me away. A few repeat spins of the record and it proves itself to be a real mood elevator and full of earworm hooks. High five indeed.

...but Mull Historical Society wants their ball back. Seriously, have a listen. Coincidence or synchronicity but at a decade remove? Oh, and @natx, the wyld stallyns comment is genius. Made me download right there!!

yes

beautifully disjointed , on the attack with inspired and aggressive guitar playing - really unqiue record - its collage-like and it all works.

Pleasantly surprised

Downloaded this after reading some reviews and listening to the previews... a very good, interesting, different kind of album. Low on vocals, high on shredding guitar, but not in an annoying 80's kind of way... a whole new spin on the concept. My only complaint is the tracks are so short... you just breeze through the album, hitting the end and wishing it had lasted a bit longer. Very worth the download.

I'm enjoying listening, but the tracks all sound too much alike.
