Subhumans: Time Flies/Rats

The English punk rockers Subhumans have given you a chance to travel back in time with the reissue of the albums Rats and Time Flies But Aeroplanes Crash together on one CD. This double dose of attitude takes you down the angry path where the band tries to enlighten you about the social problems that were prevalent at the time with a high speed punk attack that pummels the eardrums and rakes the nerves with its raw unrefined sound.

Taken on a whole, this disc will neither turn off any punk fans nor make any new ones. It is an album that sound too much like so many others out there and the messages, while timely, are nothing new and will not raise the consciousness of the listeners but just states facts that are known to all anyway.

Musically, this album is loud and travels down the punk avenue with a vengeance, but suffers from using the same well worn riffs and melody lines as so many other commuters caught in the traffic jam of this genre. Don't expect anything new and exciting. You will be sadly disappointed.

That said, there is not many punk fans that want to do much more than create damage to their bodies in a mosh pit anyway. For them, this is a soundtrack that will do nicely. Angry and loud, Subhumans give you an ideal opportunity to gather all your friends and see who survives the trip into the pit!
