"After a hiatus since 2008, you would think that they (Flat Broke) would have gone into a softer tangent, but luckily for the listener, they went out and made a street punk album that has depth beyond the boots, drinking and sports anthems that are done to death. They have given us the song “Ska City Rockers” which is one of my favorites on here with the whoa-ohs, light ska and gritty vocals added to make this a fantastic song. Of course that’s not to say that the other songs aren’t good, they aren’t good at all…they are great! There is not one duff song on this album and the gang vocals mixed with a ton of whoa-ohs, gritty lead vocals, the tight playing and the quality of the lyrics made this one that will stand out from the street punk bands that are stuck in a rut. This album has more feeling and raw emotion than some street punk bands entire careers."
