Randy - Red Banner Rockers

Swedish punk rockers Randy have their new album released in North America this week via Fat Wreck Chords (it was out a few months ago in Europe on Burning Heart). Randy The Band is a bit of a return to form for these guys who have run the gamut from skate punk to classic rock-inspired riffage to trashy rock n roll and back again. At times this album reminds me why I liked Randy so much in the first place, the anthemic sing-along choruses that I missed on their last album. Other times it sounds a bit overproduced and bland. For the most part I've given up on punk rock but every now and then I still have a soft spot for songs like these.
