Adhesive "Sideburner" Review

Originally published in 1998 in issue number 13 of Married Punks, this CD was sent to me from Hopeless Records specifically for review.

Adhesive Sideburner

It's not just the accent that causes these Swedes to sound like Millencolin, it's the whole sound.  I guess that's to be expected from bands weened on Bad Religion.  Unfortunately, like most melodic punk bands, Adhesive doesn't follow Bad Religion's lead on lyrical content.  Instead, the band focuses on a more personal side of things.  (Though "Conscience" does get political.)

This isn't a slam on Adhesive.  It's a talented band, but these types of bands are so commonplace these days that they fail to excite me.
