Is Anyone Listening?
'While the music is fast and furious, it drips with irresistible harmonies and melodies that even the most hardcore at heart can't resist... I highly recommend checking out The Carry-Ons if you're interested in solid melodic punk-n-roll bands that aren't rehashed rock bands.' -PunkRockReview.org 'Enjoyable record from start to finish... Hard and gritty but anthemic and rarely dipping in high energy stakes. A great transition of hardcore and melody with ska rhythm.' -Distorted Magazine 'Their sound is refreshing, but also rooted in classic punk and syncopated ska rhythms. The band keeps their energy level high and the mood upbeat with anthemic songs like the 'The War Is Over'. 'F*** the Cliché' is another hard rockin' song with choppy rhythms during the verse, straight grinding during the epical chorus, and a pseudo Spanish guitar line to boot. 'Common Cents' has an old school sound, jumping between reggae beats and hardcore axe-mangling. The Carry-Ons are good about taking the best parts of old and new punk and bringing them together to make a blend that is pure without losing that classic sound and without sounding dated.' -Interpunk.com.
