Most of the disc is raw circle-pit punk, but it has some surprisingly sophisticated moments: A love letter to the Rubber City, "Main Street," begins with a soft-strum intro, and its sandpaper melodies stand next to bar-rock punk from the Dropkick Murphys, Rancid, and the Pogues. (The Pricks cover Shane MacGowan's "Woman's Got Me Drinkin'" here, and look for a cover of Sham 69's "Borstal Breakout" on the upcoming Pricks Anthology). Closing with an instrumental track, this little dose of Pricks is a great tease, but too short to satisfy. That's a good thing too.
