Classic Review: Whatever It Takes- A Fistful of Revolution/ Stars and Skulls

This isn’t a new but a fucking classic! In 2003 Whatever It Takes released their full length album on A-F Records which also included their Stars and Skulls ep. They were an amazing blend of east coast emo and hard core. The vocalist is Anti-Flag’s own Chris#2. I remember first hearing a couple of their songs on a comp and following the lead up to the release. I was fucking stoked on it! Right from the first track City Streets, Summer Heat i was hooked in (still one of my favorite tracks off of this). My other favorite is Post Marked Yesterday which is just a perfect early 2000’s emo track. The whole release is just amazing front to back. It perfectly captured an era of the scene I really miss. I bugged so many people in my local scene to listen to this. The playing and songwriting are fucking solid. This album still means a lot to me 17 years later and Chris’ voice is perfect for this! Click the links below which include a recent acoustic set by Chris #2 of 11 of these songs and play it fucking loud!
