Hi. My name is Atom, and I play in a band called Armalite. We’ve been practicing together for about three years now, and played at least as many shows (at most, eight). Armalite is composed of four busy-ish, older-ish folks. Most of us play in other, full-on bands, and all of us have stuff that makes it near impossible for Armalite to play outside of the Philadelphia metropolitan area on a regular, or even occasional basis. So far, this is quite a sales pitch, no? Dan Yemin currently screams, writes songs, and plays guitar occasionally for Paint It Black, and has been in a bunch of bands that people liked, and continue to like, such as Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, and even briefly played guitar for the pile of shit Ressurection. Mike McKee currently also plays guitar, and sings in Amateur Party (which has a way better name than Armalite... come to think of it, few bands don’t.... maybe the punksters Total Society don’t), screamed for Philly hardcore doods and doodette Kill the Man Who Questions, and is the editor of a decidedly non pile-of-shit magazine from Philadelphia called Rockpile. Jeff Ziga currently plays drums for True If Destroyed, Affirmative Action Jackson, and a rock n’ roll band camp during the summer. Me? I’m a dad of a twenty month old, who is nicknamed ‘The Potato’, and I teach high school physics and chemistry. I used to do a one person band-ish thing called Atom and His Package, but missed playing loud guitar with humans.

We’re four friends who play music together in Armalite purely because it’s fun. We like writing songs, and playing them together in Mike’s basement. We recorded a bunch of them and godamnit, we WILL play some shows. What does it sound like? Hmmm... Mike likes Ignition a LOT, and I am a sucker for pop... Dan & Jeff know the difference between coming in on the ‘1’ and the ‘and’, and Mike and I fake it. Hope you like it. Thanks.

This one is a hard review for me. I want to like it more than I do. I can't really put my finger on what is missing but something isn't clicking. Maybe I was expecting more Dan vocals and a closer sound to Kid Dynamite, Paint It Black. I think I would like the music to be a little faster and maybe a touch heavier. Its definitely not bad at all. It just is a little more poppy than my usual taste run. I love the bass line that starts the first song and the lyrics are really smart and ...uh...different...in a good way. Well played, etc. I know a million people love this band so maybe I will grow to love it.

This is album is dope as the pope...it get's 4 out of 5 on the dopeness scale! If you like poppy music that makes you sing along to it while crusin' in your Impreza or Civic.

Holy shit, this one took me by surprise! I fully admit to buying this because Dan Yemin is involved, and I dig some of Atom's previous stuff. But this totally blew away my expectations. Eleven tunes, all HITS! This shit is awesome. I can't wait to see them at the '06 Gainesville FEST!

this is a really solid release from the Philly area. I like Adam from Atom and His Package alot, and Dan from...well we all know from where. Philly punk rock is really good, and this band, this release, is no exception. If you like good punk rock music with some pop, or Philly style punk rock, get this.

(could i use the phrase "punk rock" anymore? damn)
