Canadian punk artist Greg Rekus is no stranger to the pages of our zine, we interviewed this fantastic artist couple of months ago. This time, we had a wonderful chance to listen and review the brand new record, out this January. The record contains 13 new songs of melody, drama, heartbreak and catharsis. I smiled, laughed, felt happiness and sadness all the while listening to this one. Not Too Late To Change is the nice song with a message and beautiful chorus. Besides standard punkrock and acoustic song structures, there is also saxophone used on this record like in beautiful Time. Greg˙s voice sounds just made for the music he creates and I personally think this new album is the crown in his work until now concerning the lyrics which everyone can relate to and catchy emotional punkrock music for the heart. One of the best songs on this record for me is Smart Ones, anthemic chorus, uptempo and clever use of sax making it my favorite. Also, Take A Stand and A Newer Hope are the songs that somehow stand out for me, that doesn˙t mean that the rest of the songs are not awesome. Go get this one!
