"Bricks Are Heavy" (Reprise; 1992)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Sometimes, I just surf Yahoo, looking up bands that I haven't heard from in awhile but that I really used to like a lot.
Recently, that band was L7, the all chick heavy punk band from mid- to late 90s. What I remember most about this band was their hard-driving, dark-tinged punk that made your ears bleed for about a week after you heard it.
Then I check out RoughEdge.com and find out we don't have a single L7 CD review here (so many bands, so little time). So I immediately headed over to MotherMetal.com where I downloaded "Bricks Are Heavy."
It was just as I remember. "Bricks Are Heavy" has a shit-kicking, heavy metal/punk sound that's dark, dirty and mean. And it's considered one of the band's lighter CDs!
I don't know what happened to L7, just that I'm sure they broke up. Still, "Bricks Are Heavy" is an explosive powder keg of a CD that keeps the music hard and steady. L7 may not be around any more, but their music still kicks ass.

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.
