The Effort "Wartime Citizens" CD


From the first breaths on the opening track "Price Of Man(ipulation)" to the shrill end of the closer and title track, "Wartime Citizens," The Effort's most recent offering is a visceral, desperate and personal attack on the American dream. It is clear that Effort front man and lyricist Tony Auger is filled with an anger that is so perfectly captured in the poignant and timely sonic assault that this Massachusetts quintet deliver. Swift driving melody laced with elusive sharp edges, a-la Dangers/Touche Amore, The Effort's "Wartime Citizens" can easily stand tall amongst both relevant contemporaries and revered predecessors.
