Warped Coasters made an analytical error. The best of 2008 list dismissed Canadian hardcore act Fucked Up as an artist "I could give two shits about." Apparently I did not hear the nuance below the screaming. The guitars are actually pretty interesting, and as someone that isn't exactly a regular hardcore listener, I should have given the band a better chance. The track "Crooked Head" is pretty fucking vicious and worthwhile. Sometimes I have a hard time getting past the lack of melody in the vocal lines, but there is plenty of melody paired with arty dissonance laying just under the surface. And his voice is fucking angry. Thank god for anger.
Warped Coasters regrets the error.
