HAIKU REVIEWS
by Gin-su

Continuing in our effort to inject our readers with a shot of culture now and then, we here at the Reglar Wiglar are proud to introduce another installment of Haiku Record Reviews. Classy, ain't it?


ENGINE DOWN
Engine Down (Lookout!)

Emotional rock
fighting angst and ennui
living is hard, no?

GREENLAWN ABBEY
Greenlawn Abbey (Diaphragm)

Sixties--style rocking
Toe--tapping and head--bobbing
strongly encouraged

HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS
The Silence in Black and White (Victory)

current hot genre
rough and smooth vocal hybrid
doesn't work for me

MY REVENGE
Less Plot, More Blood (Thorp)

The plot does thicken
punk rock drama soon unfolds
my revenge served cold

PIANO DRAG
Send Us a Signal (One Cell/Ethospine)

jagged sharp edges
recognizable yet new
drag this piano

STRUNG OUT
Exile in Oblivion (Fat Wreck Chords)

melodic punk rock
ala SoCal to be sure
quintet and Vans vets

DAMAGE CONTROL
What it Takes (Livewire)

damage has been done
with crunchy, distorted chords
control is not lost
