American Speedway - "A Bigger Boat" album

This is some kickin' high-octane punk and roll from the Liberty city, and on their second full-lengther, American Speedway take no prisoners. 10 songs in 28 minutes means these guys (and girl) get straight to the point. Imagine AC/DC's Brian Johnson fronting a speed-punk act, and you have American Speedway. "I Killed Laura Palmer" is both catchy and fearsome, and "Ready To Roll" doesn't relent -- as intense and fast as any speed or thrash metal. But everything else here is a rip-roaring anthem just as well. A perfect audio caffeine for long, tiring drives along the interstate. Fantastic work, and I'd bet an amazing live act!
