Specials Encore Review

The new Specials’ album came across my desk and I was excited as a ska fan. So excited that I was let down actually. This one kinda falls flat. The music is barely ska and kinda uninteresting. The lyrics are so on the nose that it sounds more like angry teenage liberal social media posts. This is upsetting as I recall this band being quite clever and musically innovative. Maybe age caught up to em. The 4 year recording process sounds more like a knee jerk recording circa NOFX’s Bush era records. No I didn’t quite dig it.
