Unwritten Law album for sale Product Description



Constant touring and the support of fans have enabled Unwritten Law to rise above the glut of rock and punk bands that have saturated the scene since Green Day exploded in the mid-'90s. Songs like "Harmonic" and "Teenage Suicide" show a depth of songwriting and arrangement that few other bands of the genre obtain. Scott Russo sings tight vocals over an extremely impressive killer rhythm section.   ...See Full Description

Great Album!!!
If you like punk/power-pop, this is the album to get. There is enough variety in tempo so that it is one of those CD's you can just listen to all the way through. It's that good. From the killer opening riff of the song "Harmonic," to the punchy and frank chorus of "Sorry" (which sings about lust) to the hip hop groovy acoustic punk of "Cailin" all the way until the sad bluesy riffing and wonderfully layered vocal melodies of "Before I Go" and the rubbernecking of "Genocide", there is a certain something that distinguishes this album from other punk/power pop albums. So just take a listen!!

One of, if not the BEST album
Great album! More melodic than OZ factor, but the tunes are great. Had to buy this CD 4 times because it got "MISPLACED" by friends.

The best album since The beatles sneezed
This album is a snap shot in time for its generation. With the boom of underground "alternative"(?) well and truly in the mainstream many artists were unable to complete the commercial crossover from the underground without completely selling out, witness the money printing efforts of Green Day's "Nimrod" and the cash cow that is Blink 182. Anywhoo from out of the shadow of there 1st major label release "Oz Factor" Unwritten law delivered the teastement to ife itself "Unwritten Law". To describe moments of this album as dynamite is an understatement. The first eccentric guitar tuning twangs of "Harmonic", the rip snorting deliverance of "Teenage Suicide" and the carefully prosed heart busting "Before I go". When Unwritten Law put there mind to a song they deliver diamonds. "Teenage suicide" has everything, an obvious topic, pounding rifts and harmonic lead guitars. "Cailin" A song about the emotional pressures of touring whilst having a new born child is your perfect 3 minute radio gem, A genuine salute at how to get the mainstream audiences attention without the preconcieved idea of a cash injection. Moments on this album like the simple love ballad "Before I go" or "California Sky" (which musically and vocally is the stand out tune of this album) shine as the "album" tracks that could have been singles. However this album is flawed "Holiday" sees Unwritten Law do there one song that completely underwrites the begining to my review, a 2 1/2 minute ode to trying to sell out, realising your selling out and before you know it your manager has already forwarded the tapes to the record company. "Coffin text" sounds like a combination ofsongs from the "Oz factor" and has about as much lyrical meaning as "Hit me baby one more time". Then there is track 3 "Sorry" which should have been aborted but it wasn't. Scott adopts the mentality of a 15 year old to write this song and well, if that was his goal, he achieved it. OK so I said this album was perfect. I am a harsh critic but the three etches on an otherwise flawless album make this CD perfect. The worst moments stand out so much because the key moments of this album are astounding. If the songs were not sorrounded by articulations of brilliance I'm sure i would not think of them so critically. I am one of Unwritten Law's biggest fans (I have this album cover on my arm) and this CD highlights how well the band can fuse the traditional fundamentals of rock, indie and punk without needing to refer to boobs. Throw this CD in a time capsule, it says more about the ninties then MC Hammer!
