"Stranger" (Bridge Nine; 2007)

Reviewed by Snidermann

What a great name for an album: "Stranger." Simple but effective. 

Punk, in my humble opinion, is one of the purest forms of rock'n'roll and "Stranger" is one of the best punk collections I have heard in quite some time. The music is explosive. You know instantly that you are in the presence of a band that know how to deliver a powerful punch. 

However, as much as I really liked this band (and the fact that they sounded like they were having a good time playing), I found that the music did not change much from cut to cut. 

Still, Ambitions' "Stranger" is a very solid performance. As I've said before on these pages, and as I will be saying again in the future, any punk is good punk. 

Ambitions: Jay Aust - vocals; Jeff Aust - guitar; John Ross - bass; Keith Maddog - drums; Jake Woodruff - guitar.

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.
