Sure, 80 percent of emo bands are also-rans, but for what valid movement was that not true after an initial burst of creativity? Exercising selectivity, the post-Fugazi/Dischord style sounds pretty kicking and screaming when played well, and that's what we have here. This New York four has been sharpening lances over an EP produced by ex-Gray Matter and Senator Flux great Geoff Turner, a single, and a split-single with Hot Water Music, so they're ready for the whole bite of an LP. True, Games at High Sppeds sounds like it could have been released on Dischord a decade ago, but played so well, it's no less for breaking new ground. The point is that jagged, high-pummel rhythmic tracks such as "Zero Return" and "It's Good to Be Here in Paris" seem to leap off the burner with a tight-wound ferocity, shouted-sung vocals, and some menacing brutality (not metallic) that some of the more polite emo bands could stand to get a measure of. Pilot to Gunner could stand to get some more aural/stylistic variety, instead of being in your face with the heavy stuff every second. But in small segments, this rips.
