Estrogen Highs from Conneticut have just enough of what’s usually missing from a straight forward rock’n roll band these days. With nothing more than a peculiar name and an affiliation with the Sudden Walks as reference points, Estrogen Highs have delivered a simplistic and direct stab at primitive rock’n roll that continues to seep in and take hold long after the record stops. Not too far off from the oddly familiar Tyvek debut in it’s inability to be pigeonholed, Estrogen Highs take that same ‘less is more’ aesthetic and keep it honest and catchy as an alternative to adding on to an already tired schtick, and they effortlessly let the music hammer out their blurry message.

It’s a loaded and controversial word in music reviewing, but in Title Fight’s case it just seems right: maturation. Graduating from an earnestCan’t Slow Down tribute act on their previous EPs — a 2007 split with the Erection Kids and last year’s 7″ growth spurt, Kingston — into a gruffer, more dynamic quartet on The Last Thing You Forget, the band’s newest 7″ (and collections CD, comprising new tracks with the aforementioned) offers noticeably darker, more depressing fare than they’ve previously composed. And they’re all the better for it.  -http://www.punknews.org/review/8649
