Get A Grip On Yourself

Reprise

Great name for a band, but I just couldn’t get into it. Don’t listen to me. A lot of people really love the “hard pop” music played on the radio, which is what Wank sounds like to me: medium-fast guitars, some power chords, the music slows down for the vocals, and the vocals are just not powerful, they’re simply “there.” They also have the nerve to name their album after a Chrome song (not covered), the gall to name an original song “Paranoid,” and sing a song called “White Lightening” without any allusions to the south. I think they reach too deep with their lyrics; all the tunes are about depressing subjects like bad relationships and dead-end jobs. I couldn’t groove on it, but you might.
