The Liv­ing End have al­ways been po­lit­i­cal, will­ing to throw the first punch. Their eighth al­bum blazes on Don’t Lose It and Drop the Nee­dle. Chris Cheney and Co. are full of vi­tal­ity and vit­riol on Death of the Amer­i­can Dream and Wake Up the Vam­pires, rail­ing against gov­ern­ments with vested in­ter­ests. Other­side joins a Blue Oys­ter Cult; Not Like Other Boys is a crisp pop cut where Cheney’s voice does as it pleases. It’s The Liv­ing End, back as we know and like them. /MIKEY CAHILL
