    I have been using this cleaner since it was released...the results are amazing! This is a must for any record collector and would recommend this to anyone looking for the best way to clean their vinyl records! GrooveWasher...or nothing for me! Christopher Burns


    Hands down, the best record cleaner on the market. Levi E.


    The GrooveWasher Record Cleaning Kit includes:



    • Hand painted poplar wood handle in Red Hot Red or South Beach Green -OR- Solid Milled American Black Walnut handle* with hand rubbed oil polyurethane finish
    • One All Purpose Cleaning Pad (Red Base)--with velcro on the base to secure the pad to the handle and allow easy removal for cleaning or replacement.
    • One 2 oz bottle of G2 Fluid with mist spray applicator.
    • Record label protector mask
    • GrooveWasher Record Cleaning Booklet

    *The GrooveWasher Starter Kit handle is milled from a single piece of American poplar wood, hand painted with oil enamel. We designed the handle shape to be easy to grip while cleaning your records. Hand crafted in our plant in North Kansas City, MO, USA.


    G2 Fluid--Science


    The GrooveWasher G2 Fluid is the result of years of research and testing. The selection of ingredients was guided by the formulations of the D series fluids of the 1970s. G2 Fluid is designed for maximum cleaning effectiveness of the delicate vinyl surface and microgroove. Anti-static action on contact. Honest cleaning to release the honest sound of the recording.


    G2 does not fix scratches or scuffs. Once the analog signal in the microgroove is lost, nothing will recover it.


    A two ounce spray bottle has more than 300 fine mist sprays. Enough to clean both sides of 50 records! (YMMV). 2 oz-4 oz Combo Fluid Packs and 8 ounce refill bottles are available for separate purchase.


    Some vinyl record cleaning fluids on the market today are plain distilled water. Or worse, have a high level of alcohol which is an ineffective cleaner and can harm vinyl records. Some can leave a layer in the microgroove that reduces sound fidelity.


    G2 Fluid Contains:


    • Surfactants: State of the art surfactants, designed to dissolve the oils from fingerprints and effectively clean the vinyl record's delicate surface.
    • Super wetting agents:A specialty chemical combined with a blending agent that reduces the fluid's viscosity so it can penetrate to the bottom of the microgroove and spread the G2 Fluid across the record evenly.
    • Emulsifiers: Holds the oils, dirt, mildew and microdust particles in suspension until the microfiber fabric cleaning pad absorbs and pulls the contaminants from the record surface. The emulsifiers restore the record's natural shiny surface.
    • Purified, deionized water: Deionized water is the best carrier for the active cleaning ingredients and eliminates static electric charges on the record's surface on contact.

    Cleaning Pad Design & Science


    The GrooveWasher cleaning pads feature the highest quality split microfiber and other absorbent fabrics. These fabrics are effective in removing the contaminants borne in the G2 Fluid from the record's microgroove. The velcro backed pad design allows the pad to be washed or replaced. The cleaning pads are hand made in our plant in North Kansas City, MO, USA.


    Record Cleaning Instruction Booklet


    Each GrooveWasher Starter Kit includes an Instruction Booklet with helpful information on record cleaning and using the GrooveWasher System.


    GrooveWasher is the best manual record cleaner on Earth. And likely Mars and Jupiter too. Nate Goyer, The Vinyl Guide Podcast

    AudioQuest Conductive Record Brush


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Back in 1973, I became a dedicated user of the Decca Carbon Fiber Record Brush. The British Decca Brush was so wonderfully more effective than any of the wet-cloth-pad cleaners that smeared dirt around on one's records.


    As often happens to truly superior products, the Decca Brush was mostly ignored - the overall record-cleaning market was dominated by cleaning pads attached to wood handles - not because they worked well, but because many hi-fi stores preferred to sell a cleaner that forced customers to come back to buy "special" fluid, again and again.


    After creating AudioQuest in 1980, and with the wild success of the AQ 404 phono cartridge in 1982, and because I personally used a Carbon Fiber record brush every single day - AudioQuest began making the AQ Carbon Fiber Record Brush - now a 35-year old success story, and maybe the world's favorite way to respect and care for LPs.


    Except - we eventually learned that the AQ Record Brush (and every other brand of carbon Fiber brush), doesn't have a good electrical path between the fibers and the handle, and that the print-protecting coating on the metal handle prevents a proper electrical connection to the user's hand. The user is the "ground" for static electricity, so having a good electrical contact from fibers-to-hand is a big deal!


    In creating AQ's new Conductive Carbon Fiber Brush, AudioQuest created new tooling for every part of our new design. AQ's reborn Brush has ideal conductivity from the Carbon Fibers, through the internal parts of the brush, to the conductive Gold Contacts placed right where your fingers need them.


    We also reinvestigated what is possible with Carbon Fibers, finally choosing for our new Brush a far greater quantity of new smaller fibers in order to more effectively sweep away micro-dirt, not just the less relevant visible dust.


    To everyone who has an AQ Record Brush (thank you), or any brand of Carbon Fiber brush, and to everyone who hasn't yet discovered how simple it is to keep records clean:


    We invite you to experience the reborn AudioQuest Conductive Record Brush.


    Your records will thank you!


    • Safe, fast, and effective tool for removing dust and debris from vinyl records
    • Conductive carbon fiber bristles and conductive gold contacts remove microscopic dust before it becomes embedded in the vinyl
    • Keeps records sounding like new
    • Also perfect for computer keyboards and much more

    Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme LP Cleaning Fluid

    Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme LP Cleaning Fluid Removes All Organic Materials Embedded in the Grooves of Your Precious Vinyl Records. Nothing on the Market Works as Well to Remove Oils, Sweat, Smoke and Mold!


    Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme Cleaner for all Vinyl LPs is a revolution in record cleaning! PLUS uses enzymes to more completely clean records than any other fluid we've found.


    Most sound degrading contaminants found on records are organic in nature, oils and sweat from hands, skin, hair and other minuscule particles of dust are attracted by electrostatic charges on the vinyl and can become deeply embedded in the vinyl. The best way to remove these is with an enzyme specifically designed for this purpose. By coating the play surface with PLUS Enzyme Cleaning Fluid and allowing it to sit on the record surface for 3-5 minutes, the enzymes will break the particles down and loosen them from the grooves.


    Highly purified, high surface tension water is used as the base for PLUS - water that will bead up, removing contaminants and holding them in the water beads, rather than allowing them to settle back into the grooves.


    Using PLUS is a revelation, even on a clean record, the improvement is shocking. Drastically lower noise floor, increased dynamic range, richer tonal balance and clear undistorted peaks. Put simply, PLUS reveals more of the information that's been hiding in the grooves.


    To get the most out of PLUS, we highly recommend using Mobile Fidelity PURE Record Rinse. PURE is ultra-pure water that has gone through four stages of deionization, after which it is triple-distilled, then treated with high intensity ultraviolet light to kill all bacteria and microbiological particles. This intense and thorough process leaves nothing in PURE to harm your vinyl.


    Mobile Fidelity has a history of setting industry standards. We are the first to provide this quality of care in our base and rinse water. The ultraviolet light purification sets the bar for the competition to once again play catch-up. Call us today to learn more about how analog lovers can benefit from Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme Cleaning Fluid.

    Product Editors Stereophile


    ...The most effective, easy-to-use record-cleaning machine I've ever tried.

    - Michael Fremer, Stereophile, June 2012


    Cleaning Time: 5 minutes

    Size: 13w x 8 d x 10.7 h (33cm w x 20cm d x 27cm h)

    Weight: 12lbs (5.5kg)

    Cleaning Solution: 4.5 liters (1.2 gal) of distilled water added to 20ml of cleaning concentrate.


    The Vinyl Cleaner PRO is the next generation, upgraded version of the award-winning ultrasonic LP cleaning system. Incorporating five years of evolutionary enhancements in addition to important upgrades to internal component parts, the Vinyl Cleaner PRO offers better features and performance, and also promises better reliability.


    Features of the new Vinyl Cleaner PRO include better, quieter drying, a new premium motor, an upgraded pump with ceramic bearings, and improvements to the electronic control system including a dry-only option.


    The Audio Desk Systeme Vinyl Cleaner Pro is the latest version of the first and only record cleaning machine that incorporates an ultrasonic cleaning cycle in addition to a more conventional mechanical cleaning via bi-directional rotating microfiber cleaning drums, and the result is the cleanest LP's ever. Unlike other record cleaners the ultrasonic Vinyl Cleaner bursts millions of microscopic bubbles off the surface of the record all the way to the bottom of the groove, where no fiber is fine enough to reach. And among LP cleaners the Audio Desk System Vinyl Cleaner is unique in using filtered air for drying, rather than one of the static-inducing suction systems employed by other record cleaning machines.


    This vinyl record cleaner is fully automatic - just put the LP in the slot, push the button, and come back in 6 minutes (or tomorrow!) for a thoroughly cleaned and dried LP (both sides). Whole new layers of inner detail and air are revealed in the recordings, and of course most surface noise is eliminated.


    Comes with 2 vials of a proprietary cleaning fluid developed specifically for this machine. A container of the fluid concentrate plus a gallon of distilled water cleans 150 new LP's, or 100 used LP's.


    Records are precious. Not only are they arguably the best-sounding medium for reproduced music, but they often constitute irreplaceable collections. Even with careful handling contamination cannot be avoided in the long term. It is also well known that residual compounds from the LP pressing process obscure inner detail unless removed by cleaning even new records.


    Reiner Glass of Audiodesksysteme has developed a professional quality, easy to use record washing machine he call the Vinyl Cleaner. The Vinyl Cleaner is fully automatic. The record is placed perpendicularly from above into the equipment opening and the red activation button is pressed. When the green LED shines, the clean LP can be removed. During the cleaning process rotary cleaning barrels made from a microfiber material move in opposite directions while a unique ultrasonic system carefully and thoroughly removes even the finest contaminants from the grooves. In use the cleaning solution is thoroughly filtered to avoid recontamination of the LP. Two high performance fans guarantee effective drying with quiet operation.


    Technical: How can sound clean?


    Ultrasonic is sound generated above the human audible level.


    A physical effect called cavitation results from the generation of ultrasonic frequencies in a liquid. In this cavitation process ultrasonic compression waves are created by an ultrasonic transducer. When the amplitude of this soundwave increases to a level where the surface tension of the liquid is broken, the fluid will tear apart leaving behind millions of microscopic vacuum bubbles. These vacuum bubbles then rapidly compress or implode creating millions of tiny liquid jets small enough to clean inside the smallest grooves of an LP. This process, also called microagitation, displaces any contaminants on the surface of the LP.

    Introducing An Affordable Solution To Maintaining And Restoring Your Vinyl Collection


    No matter how you store and use your records they inevitably will require maintenance. When playing records, dust particles and contaminants always build up on the stylus as the tone arm moves across the record. This accumulation on the needle also "dulls" the sound.


    The emergence of the dreaded "audible pops" and "crackle sounds" heard are caused by dirt, grime and particles lodged in the record grooves themselves being hit by the needle, as well as static discharges, all amplified by the cartridge. All are annoying.


    Even new and latest pressings are subject to the same conditions as your old collection. Their release agents are found on the record from the pressing process and must be removed prior to use, otherwise they attract at an alarming rate dust and other airborne contaminants.


    Therefore, recommended is the continual maintenance and care of your records by way of regular cleanings which in turn reduces these unwanted pops and augments therefore one's listening pleasure and audition. Cleaning WILL NOT remove unwanted sounds caused by scratches on the record surface and depending on the age and condition of the record, even repeated cleanings may or may not restore the record to like new condition, but reduces the overall undesirable effect previously described.


    Everyone's an expert! There is much nonsense published regarding the cleaning of records. Soaps, chemical mixes and brews, and especially the use of large portions of alcohol etc., these all affect the record negatively either during or after cleaning. Air drying of chemicals that are not physically removed further creates issues that are cumulative over time. Indeed, to the rescue, ultrasonic cleaners have been around for decades and its use and attributes are well known and while care must also be taken as to the introduction of chemicals in the ultrasonic bath, this cleaning technology is a very valuable tool to use. We differ in how we handle the record itself. Nonsense though, are some of the extravagant prices on cleaning machines available as all ultrasonics operate the same way. >>Many add 2.5 L of alcohol to 6 L of water, dangerous!<<<


    The KirmussAudio Model KA-RC-1 revolutionizes the way we clean records. First and foremost: a Patented record suspension system assures where records of any speed and size see their grooves cleaned safely. No damage to the record by mechanical intrusion of skewers and the like.


    Secondly, only distilled water with a maximum of 45 mL ( 1.5 oz) of ISA 71% solution constitutes the bath and where applied to the record in its second cycle is an anti-bacterial surfactant, pre and post wash neutral liquid agent is used. Ultrasonics need a surfactant to aid in the cavitation of the water solution to better clean and remove contaminants.


    Third: affordability. At a price of $845, everyone can enjoy their collection and restore and maintain it.


    The Team: After 3 years of extensive research and trials audiophile and business owner Charles Kirmuss and recognized turntable restoration expert Dr. Eric Watson developed an affordable, simple to use system. With cUl and UL/CE Electrical and Safety Approvals our affordable system will increase your listening pleasure by removing most of those annoying unwanted pops and crackling sounds from both new and old records. This is not some home-made product. With Patents both issued and pending, ware also sure that You will be very pleased with the results and benefit from many years of satisfaction with our revolutionary ultrasonic based cleaner.

Spiritual Healing sets the standard for riffs, insane time changes and of course mainman Chuck Schuldiner's masterful guitar solos.

    Collision Blonde

    The band's sophomore full length is backed by guitarist Will Allard, bassist Joseph Goode and drummer Ben Sears (who also plays alongside Allard in Whips/Chains). With a new line-up and some years removed from their young, violent hardcore days, Collision Blonde's instrumental prowess sounds less like their elder contemporaries and more a cleaner tone reminiscent of Jesus and Mary Chain and The Cure, yet sharp and uneasy in the vein of Bauhaus' early gothic post-punk edge. Tracks like "Knife" and the closing "Nosedive" are aggressively built up into a cathartic release, alluding to Ceremony, Iceage and mewithoutYou at times.


    The band took a couple of weeks, held up in Allard's basement studio in late March, to record with fellow musician and friend Evan Weiss (You Blew It!, The Jazz June) who helped produce the album. While the music may allude to a heavier dream pop sound, it's still very much a hardcore record reminiscent of Dischord's blends of punk and harmony. Collision Blonde is a lyrical wreck that's driven by love, drugs, depression and waking up in a cold sweat wondering What's next for me? on a consistent basis. It's thoughtfully countered with a harmonic jangle of reverb, delay and hooks, as Xerxes has created their most polarizing work to date.

    The Only Place

    The Only Place is the follow-up to Best Coast's acclaimed 2010 album Crazy For You and it finds the proudly Southern California duo of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno maturing in both their sound and perspective. While Crazy For You was a nostalgic tribute to teenage feelings, this new album finds front woman Cosentino transitioning into adulthood, with the feeling of uncertainty and self-doubt at the emotional center of the album. The Only Place also features a love song to her home state of California in the title track. All encompassed in the memorable album cover, derived from a 1913 sheet music illustration paying homage to the golden state.


    As with all of Best Coast's previous recordings, on The Only Place, Cosentino handles all songwriting lyrics, vocals and rhythm guitar, while multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno plays lead guitar, bass and drums. What's new this time is their decision to work with producer and composer Jon Brion. A revered figure in the music world, Brion has collaborated with artists like Fiona Apple and Kanye West and created scores for such films as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Punch-Drunk Love.


    Recorded at Capitol Records' famed Studio B, The Only Place features a cleaner and richer sound than other Best Coast releases. Many of the songs' arrangements are detailed with subtle percussion and unexpected instrumentation. Intricate but never overworked, the biggest change from previous releases is how it showcases Cosentino's voice, this time letting it ring clear, unhidden by distortion and reverb.

    The Magician's Birthday

    Reissue of their 5th studio album, originally released in 1972. Album reached #31 on the US Album Charts and is RIAA-Certified GOLD. Includes the singles "Blind Eye" and "Sweet Lorraine.



    Loosely based on a story by Ken Hensley, The Magician's Birthday continues Uriah Heep's adventurous immersion into fantasy worlds at a time when similarly sci-fi pop-culture releases such as Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons were still years away. Influential in concept, appearance, and sound, the 1972 record remains a thematic bookend to Demons and Wizards, released the same year and, akin to this set, recognized as the group's high-water mark.


    Both records resonate with a newfound vitality in a 21st century engrossed in a resurgence in comic-book superheroes and gothic tales. Pursuing a more streamlined, cleaner sound that scales back harder arrangements and accentuates prog-rock and blues elements, the British band accentuates texture and hooks throughout. Uriah Heep attains a dynamic balance between brief, punchy fare (Spider Woman) and spooky, cosmic piano balladry (Echoes in the Dark), with guitarist Mick Box supplying versatile leads and underlying narratives with exceptional tonal shadings.


    Space-rock synthesizers and subtle xylophones help in further setting the moods. The Magician's Birthday skirts the parody that befell many albums that copied its formula by way of fine-tuned songwriting, David Byron's passionate singing, and cohesive playing. Groups ranging from Iron Maiden to Emerson Lake and Palmer drew from its example. Boasting arguably the strongest production of Uriah Heep's career, the record exudes early 70s warmth and organic sonics.


    As soon as your turntable's needle hits the grooves, an era renowned for wood-encased receivers, tube amplifiers, and vintage instruments will emerge in front of your eyes. Whether it's the whirring organ and eerie frequency effects on the crunchy FM radio favorite Sweet Lorraine or the ringing bells on the epic multi-part title track, The Magician's Birthday pulls you into its spell with ethereal power and supernatural charm.

    Subordination

    Since their first demo in 2013, the Austin expats in Institute have edged their raw
    anarcho-punk blitz into something much more expansive and nuanced. 2014's
    Salt EP marked the beginning of the band's working relationship with Sacred
    Bones, and it explored longer, more experimental song forms. Catharsis, the
    band's debut full-length, was another huge push forward, with a slightly cleaner
    production and some krautrock influence creeping in around the edges. Subordination
    sees them push themselves further out of genre, incorporating hard rock
    and glam and writing some of the most diverse material of their career.


    Subordination was written in the days leading up to Institute's first European
    tour, where they then had a chance to sculpt the songs live before recording them
    in summer of 2016. The songwriting and recording process sought to close the
    gap between the band's records and shows, to make an album as representative of
    their live set as possible. It was the most collaborative Institute writing session to
    date, with all four band members contributing (gtr -Arak Avakian, drums - Barry
    Elkanick, bass- Adam Cahoon & vox - Moses Brown). They worked again with
    producer Ben Greenberg (Uniform) and fully captured the intensity that has
    made them one of the best live punk bands touring today.


    Frontman Moses Brown's lyrics remain deeply personal, but rather than diving
    into introspection and plucking out intimate details about his life, he attempts to
    dismantle systems of patriarchal thought and power. Brown investigates national
    insecurities and American socialization failures through the lens of his personal
    experiences in both public school and art schools.


    The songs on Subordination address the lonely sham of playing by the rules, the
    search for money and power, the annihilation of a true personality, and the standards
    of normalcy that, from childhood, condition us to feel abject.

    Teatime Assortment

    Since before he was even able to play an instrument, Martin Newell was
    messing around with home-recordings. Having grown up in the Far East, Newell
    returned to his home of England at age 13 with just a little 3-inch spool
    tape-recorder and his first guitar. At age 14 he wrote his first song, not even
    knowing any chords. His song writing continued through is teens and into his
    20s, when he purchased a Sony reel-to-reel recorder and 12 string guitar. It
    is this early songwriting that led him working with a wide variety of musicians,
    recording in beautiful studios and forming his many projects such as Cleaners
    from Venus and Brotherhood of Lizards. But it was this early songwriting and
    recording that led him to find that he was happiest when recording by himself,
    with minimal equipment. As Newell often says, "Actually, I preferred the demos".


    Having upgraded himself from reel-to-reel to a Tascam Pocketstudio and
    digitizing some of his archaic recording knowledge, Newell set out to
    begin home recording again. The tracks on this collection run from 2010
    to mid 2014. Some are recordings loosely based on movie themes and
    soundtracks for imaginary films. Some are instrumentals from a collection
    called The Late District, while others are from a recent album Return to
    Bohemia, which saw a small release in England. This recent resurgence
    in creative strength, along with the success and newfound popularity of
    Cleaners from Venus, have all led up to Teatime Assortment. Think of it as a
    "Best of New Newell". A true wordsmith, Newell himself has put simply why
    one might be compelled to take a listen here: "If you're the sort of person
    who likes this kind of thin, then this is the sort of thing you'll probably like."

    Calling Out

    It wouldn't be entirely accurate to say that EZTV met while trying out for J. Spaceman's
    latest US touring line-up of Spiritualized, but it's not far from the truth.
    Songwriter and audio engineer Ezra Tenenbaum had been casually working
    on solo home recordings on his Tascam 8-Track in the vein of Shoes, Emitt
    Rhodes and Cleaners For Venus, and, in a desire to round out the songs, he
    enlisted bassist Shane O'Connell and drummer Michael Stasiak (formerly of
    Widowspeak). As it happened, the trio's first chance to play together was an
    audition for the American touring version of Spiritualized (they didn't get the job).
    But, the trio kept meeting and working, turning Ezra recording as a solo artist
    into Ezra, Shane and Michael playing as a band; thus, EZTV was formed.


    With a pool of over 30 demos to work with and Jarvis Taveniere of Woods
    onboard to produce, the band headed to Thump Studios in Greenpoint,
    Brooklyn, to record their debut LP for Captured Tracks. The result is Calling
    Out, a cohesive 12-song statement in the long tradition of fully realized debuts,
    stripped of artifice, but full of hooks and songwriting chops. Tracks like
    first single "The Light," premiering today via The FADER, exhibit what you would
    call the EZTV mantra: presenting songs with only the required embellishments.
    They've got one foot firmly planted in classic American power-pop and college
    rock while the other utilizes more left-of-the-dial sonic experimentation.
    The result is a sound that's both familiar and new, but always about the songs.


    In an era of independent music with a lot more emphasis placed on "story" and
    meaningless twitter feuds, EZTV present a record that speaks for itself. It's an
    LP made for an audience that doesn't want or need any kind of angle or controversy,
    but desires songs that resonate and have a lasting appeal, something
    available here in spades.

    The Tel-Star Sessions


    Limited-Edition White Vinyl With Special Art


    Newly Mixed & Mastered


    The Mule's previously unreleased original recordings from 1994 are coming!


    In early summer of 1994, while on break from Allman Brothers work, the original Mule line-up of Warren Haynes, Allen Woody, and Matt Abts assembled at Tel-Star Studios outside Sarasota, Florida, to lay down on tape their vision to exhume the rock power trio - their influences ranging from Cream and Jimi Hendrix Experience to Blue Cheer and ZZ Top.


    Says Warren, "Allen Woody had plenty of ideas in that department -- starting with simultaneously bringing back the 'rock bass' sound. Along with our discussions about the 'power trio' being missing from the current musical landscape were the discussions of how the sound of the bass guitar had gotten progressively 'cleaner' since the '80s (or late '70s), and how that affected the overall feeling of the music. So, when we went in to the studio to do our first recording sessions, part of our mission was to capture an old familiar sound as well."


    What resulted from those sessions was the key soundscape of the band's rawness and excitement that Mule fans will love: straight-ahead rock- and blues-based song structures, explorative but tight and tough as a clenched fist. And while their search for that old familiar sound bore great creative fruit, these recordings also reflect the times in which they were recorded: there are interesting Soundgarden- and Alice In Chains-like musical references to grunge and the alternative rock sound that emerged from the early and mid-'90s.

    Wake The Dead (Awaiting Repress)

    It's a beautiful thing when a good band turns to great; when they put out an album that ends all skepticism concerning the band and turns everyone's head. Such is the case with Comeback Kid's spectacular sophomore effort, Wake The Dead.


    The band's passion-filled debut, Turn It Around, put this band near the forefront of the straight edge hardcore movement, with its breakneck speeds and heart-stomping breakdowns. Still, people argued that it was a bit too generic for comfort, and that the album's songs blended into one another after five songs, making for a rather boring listen after ten minutes. Now, I don't know if the band took those comments to heart, but Wake The Dead has remedied any problems the band has had in the past and has turned out to be a flawless effort from a band who will no doubt be name-dropped as one of the most elite bands in hardcore after this release.


    Where Turn It Around failed, Wake The Deaad excels; each song is rather distinct, not in the fact that there are a lot of "departures" to be found, but that each song has its own identity and its own parts that are unique to the song. Also, the length of the album has been cut short by four tracks, from fifteen to eleven, making for a more concise (but no less intense) listen. Lastly, the production is as in-your-face as a hardcore album could sound, making the move to Victory Records (I know, we all groaned when we heard it) a seemingly helpful move. Simply put, Wake The Dead sounds as amazing as the music is. The vocals are cleaner, the drums are more effective, and the gang vocals sound fuller. Check the end of the title track for proof; it's the best sing-along since Bane's "Can We Start Again."


    Comeback Kid's music has also taken a turn towards the more punk rock-influenced hardcore spectrum, exchanging breakdowns for sheer speed and surprisingly more melodic (but no less hard-hitting) riffs. In fact, there's almost nary a breakdown to be found here; you've got your typical slower-paced rhythms to get the kids stomping, but nothing as earth-shattering as the end of, say, "All In A Year," the opener from the band's debut. The most amazing part is that you will not even notice; the songs are that good. Besides, you can still get all of the breakdown mayhem found on their debut if you see them live, which I highly consider, for they're currently on the straight edge hardcore tour of a lifetime, opening for Bane and With Honor.


    There's also nothing like listening to an album for the first time and being ripped in half by an amazing album opener; "False Idols Fall" is the quintessential hardcore anthem. It's got speed, power, gang vocals, and a powerful closing, and all you can do after the song is over is smile because it was just so absolutely perfect. I can't remember the last hardcore song that made me smile. From the opening, to the insane gang vocals of "Wake The Dead," to the anthemic and soon-to-be crowd favorite "Partners In Crime," to the technicality of "Bright Lights Keep Shining," you're left in awe at how good this band sounds. Scott Wade's vocals are top-notch and unbelievably charismatic, and the guitar work is spectacular, not for its technicality and hard-to-play parts, but just for making some of the best hardcore riffs I've ever heard. Every song is excellent, and, as stated before, each has its own identity, something that is hard to come by in recent years with hardcore music.


    This is a hands down ten out of ten. I've heard very few albums that have knocked me on my ass past a month's worth of listening, but Wake The Dead has done it. This is one hell of musical accomplishment, and is 100% deserving of a perfect rating. Pick this up TODAY.
