"Monsters We Breed" (Volcom Entertainment; 2001)

Reviewed by Snidermann

First impressions arenít always correct and The Line's "Monsters We Breed" is a perfect example of that. At first, I didn't like this CD, but - after many spin-throughs - now I find myself thinking it's quite good.

The Line is light punk enhanced with a load of emotion. Even the strange, off-center vocals eventually grown on you after awhile. I found myself getting sucked into the storylines that played out in my mind just like a movie or a good short story. 

The Line are proof positive that sometimes listening to an album only once isn't always the best way to get to know a band. Volcom Entertainment has a hell of a band here and I almost wrote them off too soon.

The Line: Ryan Immegart - guitar and vocals; Rich "Gip" Kaiser - bass, vocals; Dom Horne - guitar, vocals; Mike Thompson - 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.
