All Music Guide - John D. Luerssen
With On the Front Line, veteran New York punkers the Casualties explode like a match on gasoline. Vocalist Jorge stands out in front of punk revivalist fare like "Criminal Class" and the title track, as the quartet brings to mind front-runners of the genre's second wave like G.B.H. and the Exploited. Yet for all of their ranting, rapid-fire trad-punk ways, the topical fare found on "Media Control" and "Death Toll" is planted firmly in 2004. While drummer Meggers is unstoppable, it's the blistering guitar lines by Jake that ring out loud throughout On the Front Line.

Fans of direct, aggressive, chant-along punk will not be disappointed.

    They are only getting better with age.

    This is a band if you don't know is most likley the biggest name in punk rock. The sound quailty is the best of any of their cd's. If you have heard some of the other cd's you will know what Im talking about. It's more political then past albums but so is all punk now. Their is just more to be mad about war's,loss of privcy,broke goverenment the list could go on. The track I like the most is unknown solider.
