Get Take Out

Fork In Hand

This is a well-produced, well-written sophomore album. A lot of hardcore songs and harder, thrashing melodies brew in the album, a true sign of maturity. Get Take Out rocks a bit harder than Drop in the Bucket. There’s less ska guitar and more emphasis on distortion and horns. The horns really carry the songs well, and their lyrics are smarter and sharper. One flaw I can point out (and that’s pretty hard to do, since this is really a good album) is that certain horn lines sound a lot like the Toasters, Big D, and the Bosstones, all of which I am sure are major influences. Aside from that, they have added to their style and sound while retaining the great qualities from their first release, making this an impressive effort.
