From the opening stabs of guitar, White Reaper’s influence and intentions are clear. Adding to the increasingly crowded garage punk genre, their reverb drenched tracks bleed in to a mass of mediocrity with rare moments of brilliance providing brief slices of hope. Yet they don’t seem to capitalise on these, leaving it to opener Make Me Wanna Die, the urgency of I don’t Think She Cares and the frenetic Last 4th Of July to carry the torch. The overuse of reverb impacts too heavily on an album that lacks diversity; the one-track focus becomes its true downfall. Whilst their swagger, energy and impeccable execution are never in doubt, the album lacks the substance that so many others possess in abundance.
