Subhumans: Worlds Apart

Originally released in 1985, Worlds Apart is the type of album that digs into the minds of the English youth at the time with all the anger and angst you would expect. Trying to sound as rebellious as possible and imparting words of wisdom that tell all about the obvious evils around them, Subhumans come off as a group that is trying to sound much more social conscious than they are. Like the song "British Disease" where we find that the islands main malady is ignorance. I often wish that a song was done about this subject matter, too bad it is reserved for those on the other side of the pond.

Of the whole catalog from this band, this is by far the most cohesive and it still holds up well as a testament to their chosen genre. The punk bands that could pull off this kind of album where few and far between and this is one that should be enjoyed for sure. Don't confuse this disc with their later releases where they seemed to be searching for something to be mad at. Here they have plenty of subject matter and stand upon the soapbox proudly while grinding out the raw, gritty music that is the mainstay for these punkers. They will never be confused with the master musicians of the day but they deliver it loud, fast and as raunchy as anyone you can think of.

This has been an entertaining jaunt back to the heyday of punk. It may not be something that you will be able to listen to constantly but for those moments when you need to get the road rage built up, here is the album to do it!
