The Menzingers: On the Impossible Past

"This latest release from Philadelphia’s the Menzingers is a testament to the power of melodic punk rock. On the Impossible Past is a 13-track ode to past and future mistakes, regrets and realizations. It’s also proof that power chords don’t have to be boring, unimaginative or overdone. Sonically, this record is simultaneously beautiful and abrasive, polished with all its grit and character intact. As the first major label full-length for the Menzingers, it’s refreshing to see the band retain its sound and personality. This album should appeal to music fans who appreciate punk’s heart and attitude, but also know that sometimes you just have to sing it out to put your ghost to rest" (Alison Geisler, "CD of the Week," New Haven Advocate, 3/1/12).
