Better Living

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
Exploding with aggression, London's Flats take listeners on a journey through the crustier side of the punk world on Better Living.

Mixing hardcore's sense of agitation and dissatisfaction with the sonic violence of sludge metal and crust grind, Flats create a sense of tension that's maintained all throughout the album, making for an album of highly cathartic and bluntly aggressive punk rock that feels as influenced by Black Flag as it is by Eyehategod. As their full-length debut, Better Living finds the bandmembers more than up for the task as they smash and grab their way through a little over 30 blistering minutes of pure angst and hostility, delivering their message and getting out before anyone has the chance to call the authorities. If you're an old-school punk/hardcore fan who's been wondering where all the anger has gone, Flats have the answer you've been looking for.
