Authority Zero - A Passage in Time
Aside from the sheer speed of the band, Authority Zero brings a great sound and a great vision. It isn't all hardcore punk all the time. They mix in a beachside jam on "One More Minute" and a ska ditty on "Over Seasons." Even when they slow it down, Authority Zero never loses their intensity. While the laid back tracks are as good as anything else the band does, I prefer the brashness of their punk tracks, especially on the title track of this album. This is, as far as I can see, the very best punk of which my home state is capable.
