Polar Bear Club - Death Chorus Cover

"With the reputation that follows PBC, is this enough?"

For their first effort on Rise Records, Polar Bear Club seem to have converted their trademark huge rock jams to a sound that, although fairly enjoyable, feels like a step back in terms of musical progression. There are glimpses of the soaring melodies and rough vocals that are expected, especially on the excellent ‘Chicago Spring’ and ‘Upstate Mosquito’, but for the most part, the album feels like it is lacking the bite that is usually delivered by the Rochester five-piece. ‘Death Chorus’ is without a doubt an album full of catchy punk laced tunes, but with the reputation that follows PBC, is that enough?
