Apathy and Exhaustion





Having released three consecutive albums on Asian Man Records, Chicago boys The Lawrence Arms deliver their first Fat Wreck Chord. Apathy and Exhaustion is an eleven-track doozey that brings back memories of Jawbreaker or Jawbox or any other band whose name begins with Jaw for that matter. Favorite tracks are definitely "Your Gravest Words," "The First Eviction Notice," "Brickwall Views," and the cleverly titled "I'll Take What's In The Box Monty." Every other song features the Blake Schwartzenbach-alike singer, while the other songs highlight a raspy, cigarette voiced singer who sounds like a crusty brit-punk. The lyrics are hard to read on the insert but who likes reading anyway right kids? Fat Wreck Chords done good signing these boys, as the final product definitely passes the test.
