A lot of the factors that stand out on the opener remain strong throughout ‘The Revenge of the Fifth’, and the overall tone of the album doesn’t change a great deal. For the most part, this is an out and out punk album designed to incite a high-intensity reaction in any crowd. Perhaps the only noticeable feature is that you can sense a maturity in this release. The band have admitted they have suddenly found themselves twelve years older and a good deal wiser than when they last recorded. This has reflected in the lyrics and the feel of the album, as a more melodic side to the band does seep through on occasion. In general, this is a great returning album and certainly worth a listen of any punk fan.
