25 Ta Life – Strength Through Unity: The Spirit Remains

25 Ta Life
Strength Through Unity: The Spirit Remains
Triple Crown




25 Ta Life is sort of like watching American Idol: once you get past the embarrassment, it’s mildly entertaining. Calling 25 Ta Life average is very polite, if not entirely true. It’s not the best music but the real crime is the wholesale plagiarism of every hardcore band on the East Coast. There’s not one modicum of originality in Rick Healy’s body and his band can barely play. However, Strength Through Unity isn’t a total disaster. “Loyal to the Grave” is the sort of Slayer-influenced metalcore that Walls of Jericho would play a few short years later.

Not too long ago, I read a rumor that Rick Healy is going to front a reunited One Life Crew. I really hope that this is true, but for a reason. When they play Houston, I can videotape it and win the $10,000 from America’s Funniest Home Videos. Remember America, this was my idea first!

This album is from 1997 so the plagiarism shit you write has no sense at all.

You were there? Perhaps you are only a unwise newbie talking shit. If not, you did not learn anything.
