Therapy? High Anxiety

Thick riffs and punk melodies from almost-superstars, Therapy? come fast and furious in the form of their latest offering, High Anxiety.

Ten years into the game haven’t mellowed this fighting Irish group: “Hey Satan, You Rock,” the poppy lead track, starts the punk-rocking and neck-snapping fun, which grooves along and tells St. Peter to “park my car” while storming through the gates of Heaven…

Though singer Andrew J. Cairns sounds, at times, a little like Michael Graves (late of “Misfits”) fronting Green Day (on the opener; and track 5, “Watch You Go”), it’s a welcome rich voice that supplements the punk-n-roll vibe of the band’s new CD.

“Who Knows” brings the rock vibe to the punks, and, along with “Stand In Line” -- catchy little rockers like might bring some new fans to the mosh pit. “Nobody Here But Us,” “Watch You Go” and “Voodoo Doll” bring the punk to the metal-heads with their old-school American hardcore sing-a-long choruses… but Therapy? doesn’t stay locked in any one vibe too long to bore a listener. “Limbo” has some funky Chili-Peppers bass. “Last Blast” and “Rust” round out the disc with straight-ahead rock -- “Rust” riffs along with a nice Motorhead groove.

High Anxiety is an aptly-titled album that cooks with speed and harmony: the gap between Nirvana and Motorhead can be bridged with this kind of Therapy?.

Comes with an enhanced DVD video for “If It Kills Me.”
