  Anti-Flag - The People Or The Gun {Side One Dummy}
By Scannerzine (11.10.09) submitted

After a brief (and totally unnecessary) flirtation with a major label, one of Punk’s most politically vociferous bands is back on an independent for its seventh album. It’s another impressive slab too; but this time the band’s songs of protest strike with much more sincerity now that the ‘major’ backing has gone. ANTI-FLAG continues to expand its barbed attack here with tracks like ‘The Gre(A)t Depression’ that has a SOCIAL DISTORTION rock ‘n’ roll vibe, ‘This Is The First Night’ with its Guthrie-esque folk feel set to electric guitars and one of the highlights, ‘On Independence Day’ that incorporates a virtually dance-flavoured beat with a vitriolic vocal and guitar attack. Elsewhere the are more of the patented AF-isms be it the defiant ‘We Are The One’ (not the AVENGERS song) and the excellent ‘When All The Lights Go Out’. Most of the songs are accompanied by additional reading, the graphics are sharp and bold without being tacky and the whole disc has the feel of ‘Underground Network’ rather than ‘The Bright Lights Of America’. Neat three track bonus CDEP on initial copies too. It’s good to have you back where you belong fellas!!
