In the Bottles

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John D. Luerssen
If "A" has always stood for anarchy in punk circles, perhaps now "B" may solely represent Broken Bottles, one of the West Coast's more invigorating musical battalions of late. Played in the same fun but barbaric style that made 1982 bands like the Anti-Nowhere League so great, the tunes on In the Bottles also owe a royalty check or two to Social Distortion for the snot-nosed anthem "Afterlife." Amid the moderately fast blast of songs like "Gothic Chicks" and "Kelly Osbourne," the Bottles display a welcome sense of humor. It's a good thing, too, considering that the group's cover of the Box Tops' "The Letter" is downright laughable. Sometimes they take it too far, ...

Sometimes they take it too far, delivering absurdities about "gay Nazis from the valley" "Pink Swastika" and sexual conquests with Mariah Carey "Bloody Mary", but Broken Bottles are largely capable of giving listeners -- provided they're not too faint of heart -- a smashing good time.

    THIS ROCKS

    This is pretty good stuff. I didn't like the name and was pretty sure I was gonna feel the same about the music but I was wrong. This Is a well written 12 song disc with all of the right stuff mixed in just right. Good hooks and melodies mixed with an n your face punch that makes this sound like the volume knob is on 10 no matter how loud you are really listening. You can't fake that!
