I made a blind purchase on this one a few months back, and am still weighing whether my decision was a smart one. A Windy City triple-threat, with something of an identity crisis I might add, (the) Lifeboys initially impressed me with this disk's opening salvo, "Acts," boasting a sonic penchant not far removed from the likes of Rhythm Corps (Method) and Frōzen Ghōst, throwing in a dab of social consciousness as well. Quite a hook on this one too. This is followed by the considerably less serious "Rebel Rock/Noble Roll" which bears a shouted, '80s rawk chorus that would be downright cheesy if the remainder of the tune didn't compensate (fortunately it does). "Talking With People From France" closes things out on a sardonic note, wrapping itself around a fun little hoe-down riff. You be the judge.
