The Rabble - "Lower Class Strugglers"

Postby the croc » Thu Aug 25, 2011 3:56 am

5 Punk Stars out of 5

True talent doesn’t just lie beneath a hit song, ground breaking record sales or a successful World tour, true talent shines brightest in the words we speak and the actions we take. When the subject is successful New Zealand trio, The Rabble you can rest assured that the talent will be on full display and the music will always be heard loud & clear.

Scratching off the punk rock layers prominently found in their previous albums (along with an EP and European exclusive greatest hits) Life’s A Journey takes the listener directly down the road less taken. From the historic intro highlighting some of the band’s most well known songs to the roots radical reggae of tracks such as Mind Ghetto and Wrong Side of the Tracks all the way to the break-neck street punk of Gunnin for the NRA and Reflection (the latter featuring street punk veteran, Mark Unseen of Boston’s The Unseen from a 2008 NZ based collaboration). Life’s A Journey is definitely The Rabble at their finest.

Reminiscent of such notable albums as The Clash’s, London Calling and Green Day’s, American Idiot it’s the message conveyed on this album that really breaks it apart from a music industry saturated with Youtube sensations and auto-tune aficionados. The lyrics are well versed and backed by the heart with songs about love, lower class struggles and standing up for what you believe in.

As the music progresses you are witness to three talented musicians proudly displaying their best work to date. Some examples include the punk rock anthem found in the first single, The Journey down to the melodic love song, With A Rose in My Hand featuring Al Barr (of Dropkick Murphys fame) through memorable punk flavored tracks such as, Blood, Sweat & Tears and Dead Anthem. Life’s A Journey is the perfect musical representation of a life well documented.

I think it’s safe to say that there are two types of people in this World, those who like The Rabble and those who will. Welcome to your new favorite album…enjoy the ride!

What a weird fucking review. Am I the only one that thought it said very little about the actual music other than the reviewer professing their desire to give them all handjobs?

STOP WHINING.

don't try to make it sound like hating cunts is a BAD thing.

at the end of the day, these people caused some hilarious fucking shit, which i can only assume is exactly what they were out to do in the first instance, and by the sounds of it had a fucking good time doing it... SO WHAT?

if people are worried about what other cunts think, they should not be on stage... it's not fucking Cat Power we're talking here. (though, someone should bottle her. i'd give a 10/10 for that one.)


Oh yeah, I found it FUCKEN HILARIOUS being punched in the face a few times, thrown to the ground, kicked and abused just because I like one band. This isn't me sticking up for The Rabble - This is me sticking up for me, and my fucken rights as a human being. They're just as intolerant as the stupid fucks they protest about all the time. Why the fuck should I have to stop going to shows, because I'm scared I'm gonna get the shit kicked out of me if I show my face? You cunts all rant on about how we all (girls in particular) should feel safe walking the streets, etc etc - but don't give a fuck about whats going on in your own back yard. If you guys can tolerate that kind of behaviour from people you call friends - well it makes me wonder what kind of people you all are. Punks my ass. Why don't you just go and start a fucking war and get it all over with.
