Always Last - Antidotes CD reviewed in MRR!

Hello people, our full length got reviewed in the Maximum Rock N Roll, February 2010 issue! Here's what the reviewer had to say about it:

"if Fat Wreck Chords ever opens up a Malaysian office, then Always Last ought to be the first signing. They have managed to distill that signature "Fat Sound" (i.e Bad Religion filtered through the lens of NOFX, ending up like a cross between No Use For A Name, Good Riddance, and Propagandhi), sing in perfect english, and faithfully reproduce the variety melodic pop-punk styles that early randy did so well. Always Last, of course, might scoff at the likes of Fat. The lyrics and liner notes are staunchly independent/diy-'til-death, and the record is co-released by three different Malaysian labels (i just picked one here to list arbitrarily). Personally, methinks it's pretty excellent all around (a little off-key singing notwithstanding), though its always trifle odd to think of the, ahem, reach of cultural imperialism that such western sounds (and ideas) can be reproduced wholesale. but there you go, that's internationalism for you!!" (Ramsey Kanaan)

Thanks Ramsey Kanaan!
