"Endangered Species" (Republic; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Good rock'n'roll should be encouraged at all levels, even if it's not your cup of tea. Such is the case with Flaw and their "Endangered Species." I may not like everything about "Endangered Species" but nonetheless, Flaw is worth mentioning. 

On "Endangered Species," Flaw does things that are great and some things that are less than stellar. The good: righteous rock'n'roll music that moves fast and flows hard and straight to the point. When the band is rocking hard, the vocals here are at their best. 

The bad: There are too many slow and mushy radio ballads here that bring the entire project down. When Flaw rocks hard, they are unbeatable, when they slow down, it puts me right to sleep. If Flaw had dropped some of the slow shit and kept the intensity up, "Endangered Species" would be a much better record. 

Flaw: Lance Arny - guitar; Ryan Jurhs - bass; Chris Volz - vocals; Michah Harvertape - drums.

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.
