Living proof that punk rock and snotty youth are not, after all, indivisible, L.A.'s Off! - comprised of current and former members of Circle Jerks, Burning Brides, Redd Kross and Rocket From the Crypt - bring a veteran's clarity of vision to the genre, which only hones their sonic vitriol. Shunning the aural ambiguities of many of punk's later substrains (pop-punk, ska-punk, post-punk, etc.), the quartet cuts to the quick, figuratively and literally, with songs that get real fast, real fast - Dimitri Coats' garage-fuzz guitars seldom linger even four beats on a single chord, while Keith Morris' semi-shouted rants detail stuff that apparently makes him pretty darn angry. A timeless SoCal soundtrack to pool skating and kegger crashing, Off! redefines "all-ages punk" in the best possible way.
