FAIL TO FOLLOW_SELF-TITLED

Fail to Follow
Self-Titled

FTF = AFI + Sick of It All (neutered)

 

More punk than most hardcore bands that decided they were good enough musicians to show off, Fail to Follow is not unlistenable at all—mediocre, maybe, but definitely not unlistenable. The lyrics aren’t whiny and the vocals actually sound like they have heart a bit more than stepped on. There are spots of bounding rhythms that always almost seem like they’re going to sustain before fading off into wussiness and those give FTF hope. I can headbang to this without crying, and that’s a good thing.
