In Our Lifetime, Vol. 3: The Revenge of Boston

With In Our Lifetime, Vol. 3, Fenway Recordings aims to sum up the best of the Boston music scene in 2002. The Damn Personals make an interesting power pop entry with "Better Living," Heavy Stud contributes the Juliana Hatfield-meets-surf rock "Over the Top," and the Kickovers offer up the Weezer-esque "Dirty Hands." There's a lot of pop here, including the south-of-the-border grooves on Kaiju Big Battel's "Los Plantanos No Bananas!," but things are rounded out with a great, angular live track by Mission of Burma ("Fun World"), Jack Drag's brilliant, shimmering "She's My Kind of Boy," and Lockgroove's noisy space rock number, "Takin' No More." There are some weak bits like Cracktorch's party metal "Theme" and Cave In's melodramatic "Dark Driving," but mostly it's a sound record that even has a couple startling highlights. The Fierce Tibetan Gods' electro-world grooves on "More Powerful Than Empires" seem strikingly original, and good ol' Bosstone Dicky Barrett singing with the Dropkick Murphys on "Dirty Water" is nostalgic, funny, and energetic.
