Veteran Massachusetts-based quintet No Trigger radiates genuine punk rock energy on TYCOON. This 11-track album is brimming over with velocity-driven melodies (“Check Mate”, “Windmill and Watertower”) with sincere snarling vocals and stomping rhythms (“Dried Piss”) that evoke some of Southern California’s finest acts (“Mountaineer”). Hard-hitting harmonies and punchy percussion collide throughout the duration of this affair, bridging the gap between the styles of Anti-Flag, Set Your Goals, fellow statesmen A Wilhelm Scream, and Pennywise to create this band’s blend of well-composed catchiness. This troupe’s sophomore effort took six years to make but proves to be well worth the wait for fans of the type of exuberant outpouring No Trigger delivers. -Mike SOS
