16 - Bridges To Burn

Rating: 8

Enduring, seminal and nihilistic to the core – California’s 16 have reformed and bounced back with the most intense, bleak and powerful album of their lengthy career. There’s no optimism here, throughout this awesome sludge-packed dirty affair Cris Jerue and co fist-fuck their way through 12 vignettes of how shit life can be. In fact, the titles alone sum up the mood of this album: ‘Throw In The Towel’, ‘Broken Down’, and ‘Monday Bloody Monday’ (which sees Cris barking, ‘It’s the worst day of my life’ – and you know he means every single word!). The soundtrack to a life of living in the gutter? You bet!
