Artist: Off With Their Heads (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Last.fm, Epitaph Records, No Idea Records, AllMusic, Wikipedia)
Off With Their Heads’ third full-length album Home is nothing short of brilliant. The record expresses raw emotions through melodic punk rock in the vein of Dillinger Four, Pegboy, and Avail. What makes Home work so incredibly well is that power of the lyrics are driven home by outstanding hooks, sing-a-long choruses, and mid-tempo ballads all of which highlight the fact that Off With Their Heads isn’t your run-of-the-mill punk band. In fact, I’ve never heard a band or a singer express desperation, isolation, and rage in such a powerful and poignant way. This is easily one of the best albums of the year.
