Got my record early, and I’m glad I did. Born Ruffians have never been this good.

JUICE (2020) takes the raw energy of their debut RED, YELLOW, & BLUE (2008) and combines it with the catchy pop rock of RUFF (2015) and the thematic cohesiveness of UNCLE, DUKE, & THE CHIEF (2018). If all that sounds eye-rollingly pretentious, just know that Born Ruffians have never sounded more confident or sure-footed.

I wanted to like this, but something didn’t click for me. There’s something lacking I can’t quite put my finger on. I’ll probably revisit it someday.
