Under Color of Official Right is a classic post-punk album in the tradition of Joy Division at it's heart—but with surprisingly heavy moments sprinkled throughout. Brutal, bleak lyrics delivered in a dreary yell make for a fitting accompaniment to tom-heavy percussion and dense guitar work.

If you've got an itch for post-punk, this album can scratch it.
