10 Songs, 22 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Ten songs in 22 minutes guarantee that Deep Fantasy keeps up the overpowering pace that the Vancouver punks White Lung started on their second album, Sorry, which established the group as an exciting new band and singer Mish Way as a no-nonsense leader. Way is back with more melody than ever, and guitarist Kenneth William mixes it up between unusual guitar riffs and straight-out power chords for maximum effect. “Drown with the Monster” kicks things off in full attack mode, but “Down It Goes” makes it clear that the band does want to be accessible to more than just punk audiences. In fact, tracks like “Face Down,” “I Believe You,” “Wrong Star," and “Just for You” make for a catchy middle of the album, where it’s impossible to not sing along with the anthemic choruses. The album even rallies for speed with the exciting “Lucky One,” which gets it all done in two minutes; then it finishes with the layered guitar/keyboard sounds of “In Your Home.”
