The Bollweevils (1995) Heavyweight (Dr. Strange Recs.)

Heavyweight is tangible leap forward for hardcore punkers the Bollweevils, displaying a more complex and nuance-ridden approach than the group's debut, Stick Your Neck Out. (The intervening album, History of the Bollweevils, Pt. 1, was a compilation of previously released tracks.) the Bollweevils still burn through each track in a high-speed thrashed-out frenzy, but this time there are some bolts of melody ripping through the tracks, and the buzzing guitars seem a whole lot more nimble and varied than on the group's debut. This is particularly evident on highlights such as "20 Something" and "Fence Sitters." The album also features a blistering throwdown on Bad Brains' "Pay to Cum." This is a highly appealing (though breathlessly energetic) album, particularly when measured against the soundalike tracks on the group's debut. by Erik Hage
