    They don't have weak songs at all. Been a fan since their first demos. Brilliant band with one of the best debut albums ever.

    The Rifles - None the Wiser é um baita álbum e olha que eu sequer conhecia a banda, de longe a melhor coisa que ouvi esse ano.

    Freedom Run has got it's moments for me, but sadly didn't bring me the euphoria of the first two albums.

    While at first Freedom Run seems lackluster, it really is a great album. While a departure from what they have done on the first two records, I have come to thoroughly enjoy it. If only they would come to New York :/ [2] lol
