Fucked Up – David Comes To Life

A supposed concept album which triumphs musically more than lyrically. The concept seems only to be apparent to reviewers studying the lyrics and making sense of this 2 hour long exhilarating ride of punk energy. With the jagged edges of their hardcore guitars smoothed over this is a greatly accessible record which despite it’s length, transfixes your brain through bounding riffing, strangely addictive growled vocals and an endless supply of melody. Plenty of cracking tunes scattered throughout the track list such as the frenetic assault of Queen of Hearts, the infectious melody of Turn The Season and the vocally intense Ship of Fools. Put simply, David Comes To Life is a consistent barrage of guitar riffs which rarely deviates. But when this staple diet is so addictive, nothing else seems to matter.
