Review: Fucked Up, Couple Tracks: Singles 2002-2009

Fucked Up
Couple Tracks: Singles 2002-2009
B+

Fucked up’s Couple Tracks: Singles 2002-2009 is a solid compilation of singles that can serve as the perfect description of a band’s growth. As an album, it doesn’t really flow, due to its nature as a compilation. However, any fan of this sort of aggressive and raw music must listen to this compilation. There are no dull moments in this collection. “Anorak City”, “Toronto FC” and “Black Hats” are standout tracks primarily due to the raw and aggressive sound in Pink Eyes’ vocals. If you are a fan of anything fast and loud, it is a collection of singles worth having. They maintain what has made Fucked Up as appealing as they are for the hipster crowds. Growling vocals, fast distorted guitars, but somehow maintain a poppy edge to their songs, where you can find some melodic catchy hooks while staying true to a more “hardcore” sound while avoiding the repetitive drumming patterns in typical punk bands. They have kept the energy, but avoided the potential boringness that can come along with this music. A must have for people anyone interested in the genre or looking into it. One of the most exciting right now.
