"I'm Not the Man That I Thought I'd Be" is a blast of three new songs from '80s hardcore revivalists Western Addiction. The title track is a heavy dose of straightforward, teeth-rattling rock that marks an expansion of Western Addiction's sound. "I'm Not The Man..." is also accented by guest vocals from Dara Santhai of the metal band Serpent Crown. The B-side of the 7" contains two tracks of the throttling hardcore that Western Addiction has become known for. "Clatter And Hiss" is also a preview of things to come, as it will be rerecorded and appear on Western Addiction's second full-length due out later this year.
