?ÄčAgainst Me! - Transgender Dysphoria Blues
RIYL: Foo Fighters and The Gaslight Anthem
Recommended Tracks: True Trans Soul Rebel, Dead Friend, Fuckmylife666.
This album is mixed greatly. I love the opening track. It gives the album a punky sound. In general, the album is very grungy and punky. I compare it to The Gaslight Anthem. They have sort of an Irish punk sound to them.
"True Trans Soul Rebel" takes me back to middle school. This song is much more punkish and and teenage like. The guitar riff is very catchy. They do a very good job bringing in the chugging guitar in the chorus.
"Fuckmylife666" is what I compare to the Gaslight Anthem— a very american punch with a twist of Irish rock thrown it.
"Dead Friend" is my favorite song on the album. It is a happy medium for me. It still has that chugging punk guitar—definitely a rock song— but also a ballad, reminding me of the Gaslight Anthem.
All together...WOW. Has to be rock album of the year
