RANDOM START: Rise Against ‘Faint Resemblance’
I’ve pretty much given up on these guys. Their releases have become progressively less appealing to me since The Sufferer & The Witness, save This Is Noise, which is excellent. That’s to be expected when you go to a major and start getting radio play, but is still a total bummer. I completely wore out The Unraveling and Revolutions Per Minute back in the early 00s.*
They’re still a fantastic live band that I’ll never be disappointed to see, but who I don’t make an effort to catch as much as I used to.
*First I realized that Dude Ranch came out 15 years ago, and now I realize that The Unraveling came out in 2001. SOMEONE STOP THE CLOCK. TELL BRADY TO SPIKE THE BALL.
