  The Magnificent - Bad Lucky
By Steve Scanner submitted 08/12/2012

MAGNIFICENT, THE - Bad Lucky {JSNTGM} This, ladies and gents, could well be Album of the Year. If not, it’s clearly Top 5 material. Picking up where the band’s debut ‘Pay The Crimes’ left off, this features 10 scintillating tracks that fuse OFF WITH THEIR HEADS Punk, SNUFF circa ‘Reach’ and the song writing prowess of THE JAM. It’s a tad unfair saying the best tracks are opener ‘1981’ and closer ‘King Of The Denim Jackets’ as that’s really detrimental to the other eight tracks in between. If that was so, I wouldn’t be telling you about the excellent chorus in both ‘Hold My Drink Up High’ (featuring Jeff Pezzati and Jeff Dean of NAKED RAYGUN/ THE BOMB) and ‘Buy More Crap’. Nor would I be telling you about the groove and lyrical greatness of ‘1990’. Ultimately, I wouldn’t be telling you that on most other albums, any of those eight tracks would be an undisputed highlight. There is no filler here; just solid, well-constructed and intelligent Punk Rock. Only real negative (as with the debut album in fact), is the rather sparse packaging; while the vocals have a resoundingly clear delivery, a lyric sheet would be appreciated. Bar that - already a classic here in the House Of Scanner. (12.08.12)
