Fucked Up – “Dose Your Dreams” Double LP
The Canadian progressive/art/hardcore band’s fifth album, four-years after their 2014 album, Glass Boys. An 82 minute concept-heavy odyssey that recasts the character from their 2011 opus, David Comes To Life. Expanding their trademark hardore into even more diverse musical styles: there’s punk stomp, alt rock strutting, dreamy pop, and party euro beats. And also – and this is one on the things I really dig about Fucked Up – featuring countless guests who add to the vocal range, ensuring that the Jerry A/Poison Idea-style gutteral roar of Damian “Pink Eyes” Abrahamis is always contrasted and complimented by melodies, equally as powerful, that are sung.
