Romeo Void - CD - Rating: 7/10

Like many one-hit-wonders, that one hit (in this instance “Never Say Never”) sounds completely different than the rest of the band’s songs. On most of the other tracks the screeching, insane saxophone is replaced with a more standard 80s smooth jazz sound’the kind of thing you would hear on a failed late night talk show’s theme song. I wonder if Romeo Void ever played on the Pat Sajak show? Anyhow, this isn’t to say the rest of CD is bad. It’s just less punk-y. The free-form poetic lyrics are still there and many of the tracks like “Charred Remains” and “White Sweater” have nice groovy bass lines to hang your hat on.
