Sometimes, I get kind of obsessed with certain records. I’ll hear something straight through, fall in love with it and then I’ll listen to it, until I get sick of it. A few months ago, The Monitor by Titus Andronicus was that album.
Usually when I get tired of a record, I’ll put it on hold. I’ll walk away from it for a month or two and then revisit it and see how I feel about it. Thankfully, my return to The Monitor saw the same result as my first experience.
This is the best punk album to come out in years.
