Mr. Dream - No Girls Allowed

Mr. Dream has created an EP full of raw punk rock music.  From the opening song, "Knuckle Sandwich", to the closing track, "Unlovable Loser", the album is wild and fun.  With just five songs that rarely clock in at over three and a half minutes, the collection is short and sweet.  That's how punk music should be.  The Brooklyn based band definitely has a successful future ahead of them.

"Knuckle Sandwich" is the major standout track.  By starting the album with this song, it's almost impossible to stop listening further.  The bass line in the verse, along with the beat, is contagious.  Even if you don't care for the rest of the songs, this one's a keeper.  Odds are... you'll enjoy the entire EP.

One thing that stood out the most, was the large amount of catchy bass riffs.  In every song, there's something great creeping along the bottom of the instruments.  The musical element that is mostly ignored in many songs is used to its advantage here.

I would check out the No Girls Allowed EP if you love energetic and rough punk music.  You could definitely call this album "noisy".  Mr. Dream reminds me of the fundamentals of this genre.  Distorted guitars, pounding drums, and crazy vocals... what else do you need?
