THE ADICTS

"Life Goes On" (People Like You; 2010)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Boasting a 35-year career with all of the original members intact (though they’ve added members along the way), The Adicts are an undeniable staple of the global punk rock scene. This Clockwork Orange garb-wearing veteran squad’s latest release, "Life Goes On," celebrates their lauded feat of sticking to the gameplan for so long with a rabble-rousing display of tumultuous tavern-ready working class punk rock (“Full Circle”, “I Love You But Don’t Come Near Me”) with a bouncy three-chord-and-the-truth delivery that harkens back to the group’s glorious salad days.

Contagious as a cold yet as simple as basic math, this troupe’s freewheeling nature and devil-may-care attitude shines across their latest 13-track endeavor, sliding in and out of fits of snide and controlled upbeat recklessness that punk purists will undoubtedly enjoy.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
