Shrouded in hazy guitars and an inordinate amount of reverb, Age Of Indignation opens in a rather dour manner. The album sees September Girls tackling a number of issues – in particular religion, which forms the basis of the lively Catholic Guilt. The punishing guitars overwhelm the urgent vocals, and it’s a grandiose affair. As the band hit their stride these soaring guitars become the main feature of every track, with their angst-filled vocals blending into the cacophony of guitar noise.

The moments where the guitars dominance relinquishes are fleeting, but they reveal the deep heartfelt lyrics, particularly in the case of Salvation. Unfortunately the impassioned subjects of the record are often overshadowed, ultimately leading to the record’s downfall.
