To say that One Day is simply another Fucked Up album operates both as a pejorative and a compliment to the Canadian hardcore group’s canon, though the process through which it came to light is genuinely unique.

The record was made in 2019, with each member of the band recording within a 24 hour period to complete the album. One Day has an urgency that suggest this, though it isn’t too different from the group’s usual rhinoceros charge approach. I Think I Might Be Weird incorporates Deerhoof-isms into their usual nosebleed approach, and the title track is a remarkable six minute tour de force. However, there isn’t anything particularly notable to single this out in the context of the band’s already quite remarkable catalogue.
