Review: The Briggs – Come All You Madmen [2008]

By Mike SOS

There’s a wistful quality stamped on the latest 12-track endeavor by The Briggs, usually reserved for the upper-echelon of the punk rock hierarchy. Whether it be the Social Distortion-like everyman lyrical approach or the Hot Water Music-esque choral glory heard on cuts such as “This is L.A.” or “Not Alone,” The Briggs manage to nail it every time — sometimes even going so far as to tap into the pub crawl melodies of Flogging Molly on cuts like the stomping “Mad Men.”

Whether you are swinging a beer mug or getting down on the dance floor, The Briggs bring enough firepower for everyone at the party to get their groove on the right way with an authentic punk rock punch that fits nicely alongside your Against Me and Bad Religion collection. www.sideonedummy.com
