Amoeba Review

Daniel Tures, Hollywood 01/29/2013

This Men of Brooklyn cough up raw, bloody chunks of rock power, but they're not particular -- they'll shift from blasting Nirvana grunge straight into some sloppy Stones country soul. Ragged but right!


Billy Gil 03/03/2012

The Men’s Open Your Heart is really a lot of fun, a fast-paced post-hardcore album for people who don’t really care much for/about hardcore. It builds on the promise of last year’s Leave Home and adds more beatific instrumental passages like “Country Song” (super tremoloed guitars and reverbed out Southern Rock riffs, I guess that could qualify as “country”) and “Oscillation,” which flirts hard with shoegaze and krautrock before moving into a heavy ass hardcore bridge with spoken word vocals lain overhead. But those moments are the minority to tons of catchy riffage — the power-pop of “Turn It Around,” growling punk of “Animal” and Isn’t Anything era My Bloody Valentine (there’s that shoegaze again!) of “Please Don’t Go Away.” Like Fucked Up now or … And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead before them, The Men refuse to be pigeonholed but delivery something a lot of us need to hear now and then — fast, hard rock ‘n’ roll.
