Somewhere in the Between
Label: Pentimento Music Co.
Four years in the making, Somewhere In The Between is exceptional, its array of clashing symbols, electric guitars and bass creating a vibrant backdrop for a medley of brass solos. Single "We Will Fall Together" is the first of many tracks here to skank and shout along to, with "Watch It Crash" and "The Receiving End Of It All" adding to the album's relentless energy. Lead singer Tomas Kalnoky and the other six members of Streetlight Manifesto have stayed true to their third-wave ska roots, with a touch of refinement since the Everything Goes Numb days.
