Lechuzaby Fenix TX
Fenix TX was one of droves of circa-2000 major label bands that took their cues from punk, both of the hardcore and poppy variety, of the 1970s and 1980s.

Fenix TX was one of droves of circa-2000 major label bands that took their cues from punk, both of the hardcore and poppy variety, of the 1970s and 1980s. They're not the worst of the lot, but neither do they stand out from the crowd, which is quite a problem considering how much many members of this particular crowd resemble each other. There are a dozen concise songs with buzzsaw guitars and anthemically sung lyrics about the frustration and alienated joys of youth. The pace only occasionally slows down, as on the closing "El Borracho," which like many songs of this era builds from a sluggish slow spare arrangement to a crescendo. Sometimes it verges on amelodic hardcore, but at other times there are enough harmonies to make it something that major labels might actually be able to pitch to commercial radio. There are some love songs, but they're not happy ones. There are some complaints against the shallow materialistic overload of American life, but if you're in their camp philosophically, you probably won't be learning anything new.

When I picked up Fenix-Tx's 1st CD, I was like ''what''? It really wasn't that good. But there newest one ''Lechuza'' is AWESOME!!!!!!! It sounds nothing like the 1st! You got to check this one out. These boys have grown up for sure!
Are you interested in good ol texas punk? This it the CD to get. I got to tell you its worth the $17.00 that I paid for it! This is there second CD and from the 1st I wasn't sure whether I was going to pick it up or not. But Im glad I did!
I have not got over how awesome Lechuza is! If you haven't picked it up yet,you got to get it. Especially if you are going to the P.O.D concert where Fenix-Tx will be opening up for them. I am lookin forward to this concert!!! What about you?
I guess i didn't know what to expect when i bought this CD--the only reason i did was because of the fact that it's associated with Drive Thru Records. I just gotta say that while I've heard better, this CD is STILL awesome and worth buying.
