There is one band that has its own unique style and that band is Against All Authority.
"What makes AAA stand out from the pack?" you ask, well, it's the way they combine aggressive Punk Rock with a cuban influenced horn section. No, they are not "ska", as most people would like think of 'em as soon as they hear a trumpet line. Those people are wrong! They know not of what they are talking about, ska music has a dancing beat, AAA however doesn't, instead they give you nothing but the best punk rock that ever came out of Florida.
This is their new album called 24 hour roadside resistance it is their 3rd release and once again AAA delivers. It's a solid album filled with songs about politics, something the fans have come to expect of this band. This album however has one disappointment, WHERE IS THE DAMN HORN SECTION!?! I mean the horn section didn't quit and their names are credited on the album, but there is only one song with horns in it and its one line. Whats up with that guys? Well, I guess the band wants to go more "Punk" or something.
The record might not be the first thing by AAA that you listen to, because it is not the (as mentioned above) AAA style old fans have come to know. With songs about police brutality, government hypocrisy and other political songs, it's good to know that at least the band's beliefs are still the same.
So all you AAA fans out there, go out and get this CD, but prepare to be surprised and all you new fans, get their old shit first and then compare the new style to the old one.
