Left Alone

Dead American Radio

Hellcat 804812

Released on August 8, 2006



The exuberant yet repentant punk anthem that launches Left Alone’s 2006 sophomore Hellcat offering is the kind of no bullshit, honest proclamation that fans of last year’s highly-praised Lonely Starts and Broken Hearts have come to expect. That lead-off number, dubbed “The Sinner,” is the sort of joyous chant along that has earned the devotion of punk purists throughout the globe. But as Dead American Radio unfolds, it reveals itself to be a far more adventurous, diverse and rewarding song cycle than its predecessor.

Simply put, Left Alone has concocted a stone cold classic album that artfully takes aim at corporate radio, suck ass emo bands and everything in between while incorporating elements of ska, cowpunk, pop contagiousness and old school punk. Yet according to Left Alone’s guitarist, songwriter and mouthpiece Elvis Cortez, that variety – which counts the efforts of saxophonist Noe, and the inclusion of Hammond organ and pedal steel – wasn’t necessarily a goal for the new disc.

If you like straight ahead fast punk, get earlier stuff. If you like the catchier stuff with more ska influence, it seems they do more and more on consecutive albums. Left Alone has good lyrics for any body who has been, well, left alone.

Elvis if you ever read this let me just say "This CD Rocks!" If you never heard of Left Alone but like ska get this. Justino is my favorite song on this album but all the songs are great. Don't listen to those other fools who reviewed this CD before me. I pre-ordered it from this site and think it's one of my favorite CD's in my collection of around 170. Try something different because American Radio is DEAD!!!!

When I first received "Dead American Radio" it struck me as outstanding but lacking in some spots. But the more I listened to it the better it became.Yes there is ska but with a great B-3 organ layin it down.Great two-tone on 4 Weeks and the get up and skank Justino.The B-3 on Every Night is just outstanding ,an instrument that could be used in more punk rock.And then is outstanding punk riffs on "Wash Away"and Dead American Radio.If you don't like the crap they call music DAR is the song.And then there is the slap in emo music's face"I Hate Emo"It sounds like "caca-crap" is so funny.And the No One Likes Us is so in your face.So a collection of life's falling downs/good times and friends/ and a stand on the music industry makes this a solid album.

I was a huge fan of Lonely Starts and Broken Hearts. Upon first listen, i was a lil dissapointed with this release. Less punk, and more ska/rockabilly/western stuff. After further listens, it grew on me. It may be less punk, but the ska/rockabilly/country tunes are pretty sweet. any punk fan would enjoy this

i feel bad giving this a bad first review, but dead american radio just didn't do it for me. i loved lonely starts and broken starts and i knew that this one wasnt going to be as fast and was going to be a new style because i had read reviews, but i didnt think it would be like this. most of the songs are slow and are played clean on guitar. the only one that reminded me of lsabh was drunk again, which is a great song. other songs that were still alright were new york city, the sinner, and every night. city to city was ok. it has a lot of skaish stuff, so if you really like that maybe you'll like this, but i'm not too into that.
