Despite its ostensibly "punk rock" trappings, the influence of acts like Bruce Springsteen and Queen are all over the record. Energetic and dense, POST- excels in its song-craft, featuring catchy melodies, tastefully layered backtracks and raw sing-song energy. Highest recommendation.… Expand

Jan 11, 2018Deeply marked by the current political environment and the fears and feelings of ordinary people, Jeff Rosenstock delivers his newest studioDeeply marked by the current political environment and the fears and feelings of ordinary people, Jeff Rosenstock delivers his newest studio album Post-, released without promotional impulse by and soon after being finished recording, the album was made available by Polyvinil's label for download in an unconventional way: you can pay the amount you want, without a fixed amount.
Ranging from a negative to a positive, emotion-filled tone, Jeff delivers great compositions in conjunction with a punk pop that proves to be worthy of attention. The album grows every time it is heard and from its frantic start to its quiet end Jeff sings vibrantly and honestly on his journey portraying the everyday ordinary in an exceptional way.
After a brief introduction in "Mornin '", "USA" opens the album grandiose and is a fervent demonstration of Jeff's potential. "Yr Throat" is anxious and pessimistic, his verses follow an easy path, but in a well-crafted way as in "All this useless energy" fourth track of the record that provides an uncontrollable will to sing along. The restless "Powerlessness" is hilarious and sounds like something Vampire Weekend would do, "TV stars" spoils a whole string of good tracks with something that could have been left out. "Melba" is the picture of a utopia after a bad day and is not more forgettable than the last. The sequence of bad tracks is broken by "Beating My Head Against A Wall" which tells of conflicting desires "All I wanna see is Peace / But I I wanna fight you". In "9/10" the use of synthesizer and the absence of noise causes the feeling that the track does not fit the context of the album and this is bad. Finally, "Let Them Win" enters into the definition of modern classic, overlapping voices and instruments in a tone of revolt once again provide the incredible will to sing together.
Being one of the first surprises of the year, Post-revealed as an album of ups and downs marked by the fear of loneliness and the way in which Jeff conveys his ideas without hesitation. Even if the bad moments are evident, they end up buried by the flood of great tracks that this album carries.… Expand

It's hard to find someone who can meet the levels of pained anguish found in Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison or Layne Staley's voice, to name a few. Jeff comes close though, it gives me hope that there are still some people willing to share their anger, pain and hurt so rawly in music.… Expand
