"Canon of Ugliness" (Killers By Trade; 2011)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

"Canon of Ugliness" is a pretty solid rockíníroll album, especially considering it's one guy doing everything including drums, guitars, songwriting and singing. His name is Anders Lindberg and heís probably one of those artists that could do even better by delegating some of the work. But some of us are control freaks. I've been called one myself.

Still, Anders is more than satisfactory on everything here. The songs run from low-level thrash anthems to driving hard rockers and, for the most part, it all works pretty well. The production is a little soft but is never a big detraction. The songs due tend to run together a little bit but again, not too much.

Good work, especially for one guy. Makes you wonder what Anders could do with a little backup!

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.
