Hostage Calm “Please Remain Calm” Review

There are many who would say that the modern generation of punk is nothing compared to what previous decades have brought us. People who say this need to grab a copy of Hostage Calm’s album, Please Remain Calm. Hostage Calm not only fits in as a potential pack leader of the punk scene of today, but they also pay homage to previous decades in terms of wide varieties of influence that really shine through their driven, passionate attitude. With this resulting creativity, they manage to pull together a collection of songs that are creative and expressive while maintaining a catchy, definitive style. Please Remain Calm is a must have for those young people growing up in this frustrating world.

The best part about this album has got to be the variety. “Woke Up Next To A Body,” shows that 70’s punk and modern rock can get along just fine with the right amount of angst. For pop-punk fans, please see “Closing Remarks.” Not feeling the traditional rock instrument vibe? “The M Word” will provide enough brass and strings to pack a full marching band into your speakers. Speaking of marching, the drums throughout this album are impressive enough to inspire an army of youth. “Patriot” is a lovelorn song that can really bring together those who share in a sense of lost pride in their country with group vocals alone. For a taste test of everything punk music can offer in one album, grab a copy of Please Remain Calm.
