    Overall, POST- is a moment-defining record both for Rosenstock but also for wider popular music and culture; it's equal places angry and fun, something we could all do with in 2018.

    While that sounds incredibly daunting--and like a really tiring listen--the album’s most impressive trait is that it makes all that vital work feel joyous and communal.

    While the subject matter of POST- ensures its relevance and substance, much like everything else Rosenstock has ever done, it also sounds like the most fun thing one could possibly do. It’s a motivation to, at the very least, get out of bed.

    This album melds its many ideas into some larger parts, with just nine songs clocking in at roughly 40 minutes. But true to form, POST- is still all sorts of bonkers in mostly the right ways.

    POST- is an incredibly fun record, and its sequencing feels like the live experience. The way Rosenstock launches into each song is a delight.

    Post- is actually a pretty wild ride. ... Perhaps surprisingly so, Post- is also one of his most accessible solo outings yet.

    A fantastic work of post-collapse rock, Rosenstock has packed POST- full with a variety of sonic textures and interesting bits of ear candy.A fantastic work of post-collapse rock, Rosenstock has packed POST- full with a variety of sonic textures and interesting bits of ear candy. 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

The album is perfectly in line with the spirit of the California mainstream, the part of the American punk rock scene that was beyond the attention of the domestic listener. Well, it pleases the presence of a pair of soul songs in the style of indie punk, diluting the frantic pace of most tracks. In general, "POST-" is an album that, like a good friend, will support you in any mood.
    :
    "POST-" is a high bar for the entire world punk community for the coming year.

He slayed them. His new record clarify minds and shake the soul with a contagious rhythm all whole the 10 tracks. 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
