"Prologue" (Self-released; 2009)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Maryland quintet Blinding Eye Dog exhibit a boisterous brand of punk on the troupe’s 18-track offering, "Prologue."

Fueled with an irreverent sense of humor (“Super Action Monster Man,” “Duck Duck Goose (In A)”) that matches the lo-fi high energy vibes (“Assassin”) and pervasive beer-swilling devil-may-care street punk attitude on cuts such as “Barbara” and “The Line,” this freewheeling act makes it pretty apparent that it doesn't take itself too seriously yet still pumps out a raucous strain of reckless rock (“Shame”).

Definitely sounding best after a couple of pints while some of your more mischievous friends plot the ensuing evening’s shenanigans, Blinding Eye Dog reinforce the simple yet effective piss and vinegar punk rock straight from the back alley.

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.
