S.I.B. The Third World War LP

An Italian band that occasionally sounds like the REACTORS or—dare I say it—a smarter VKTMS. A feisty Englishwoman belts out some modern rock material—punk, reggae, and post-punk. With such a wide stylistic approach, it’s not too surprising that S.I.B. don’t really excel at anything. The best songs here are examples of classical punk with real power, like “My Secret Life,” “Listless,” and “You.” A few worthwhile moments, but nothing earthshattering.
