I remember being pretty excited when the first Only Crime album was released back in 2004. Dudes from Good Riddance and Bane in the same band? Goddamn right, I was interested. Still, while I enjoy both of the Only Crime albums, I've probably listened to each of them less than 10 times. I don't know...it is good stuff, but it lacks something that makes me want to return to it time and time again. Still, when Marcus posted about this record last month, it sparked my interest.
Pursuance follows the same blueprint put forth with the first two Only Crime records. I'm enjoying it, and I've already listened to more than Virulence. Still there are times that it is poppy enough to make me uncomfortable, and I just want the band to rage.
