RED ANIMAL WAR
"Polizida" (Ice Planet; 2005)
Reviewed by Snidermann
There were some things that I really liked about Red Animal War's "Polizida," but there were some things that I didn't like as well.
The music was strong throughout - well played and well thought out, although a bit slow at times. The vocals were another thing all together. They were slow and maudlin and - when the band sang as a duet (which they did not multiple occasions), I found the sound frankly disturbing. It may work on one song, but not on half the CD.
"Polizida" sounds like this band put a lot of time and effort into it and, as I said before, some of the tracks here are brilliant. But there is a down side, as well. Hey, just because it's not my cup of tea, doesn't mean it's bad - it just didn't speak to me.
Red Animal War: Jeff Meaningless - vocals and bass; Justin Wilson - vocals and guitar; Matt Pittman - vocals, guitar; Jeff Wilganoski - drums.

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.
