Soft keyboards and echoed guitar-work introduce the punk-rock reverie of Booze & Glory’s Chapter IV.
That feathery sound cracks to the high-tempo burst of “Days, Months, Years;” where happy acceptance sings. The guitar carries the melody while vocals tell the story of bittersweet dreams.
Bass and drums lead to the high-tempo blow-out of “No Rules.” With lyrics that narrate the current state of existence, Booze & Glory blasts injustice with grungy passion. Booze & Glory rock the street-punk style and build kicking melodies on top of it. From the traditional style of “The Time is Now” to the impact-smack “Life’s a Gamble,” Booze & Glory give live-energy throughout their album.
This thirteen-track record has lyrics that connect individuals and embraces the whole, such as in “Violence and Fear.” No, you can’t change the world, but this album’s momentum can change your mood. Chapter IV is a pressure-release soundtrack. If you’re having a rough go, the music of Booze & Glory is audio rejuvenation.
“Start Believing” hit home and knocked it out of the park. Every lyric had me saying, “Yeah, I’ve been there.” It’s the crossroads we all face in our journey. It’s the moment we choose what path we’ll navigate. It’s the punk-rock that puts our thoughts to audio, where they can be examined more easily. This track is why I say Chapter IV is the sound of understanding. Each song speaks to the events of our lives.
So, if you need it out of your head, play it on your stereo instead. Sort your thoughts through your speakers with Booze & Glory’s Chapter IV.
