More details


Let's put the context of this album. I had seen Moral Dilemma at the Cellar Bar 8 in Cambridge. I had been knocked down by their energy, their great lyrics and their fast tempos with good structures. OK, I confess, their whole sound leaves me upside-down with a stupid grin on my dirty little face. With their incredibly professional recordings I downloaded from their myspace page ( , their debut album became one of the most exciting punk/hardcore album I've ever been waiting for. Once you've listened to "Apathy", "Bastard Sons", "Right to Remain Silent" and "Had Enough", you're addicted. Not only did they manage to get into my Live Bands top 10 list, but they also managed to be the first local band to get into my punk rock album top 10 list. I had not been so impatient to listen to an album since "Sing Sing Death house" by The Distillers and "Sweet Misery" by Born to Lose. This is not the only common point these bands share. Indeed, Moral Dilemma is a great combination of straight-forward punk/hardcore the way The Distillers, Minor Threat and AFI (the "Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes" era) used to play it with a slight sense of outlaw punk rock like Social Distortion (rock'n'roll solos, harmonica bringing a Mike-Nessian cowboy element) and white-trash hardcore like Speedealer or Black Radio. The drumming by Pasty is very precise and diversified. I had not enjoyed a drumming this way since Andy "Outbreak" Granelli (Nerve Agents, The Distillers) stopped playing punk/hardcore. Craig (guitar-vocals) has an outrageously furious voice which fits very well with the backing vocals by Chloe (Bass-backing vocals). With their hand-grenade-like lyrics and their well-developed vocal parts they manage to create an atmosphere of their own, between raw anger and more melodic scorn against our degenerating world. Most of the choruses are killer-sing-along parts people should shout while pogo-dancing alone in their room or at their gigs. The only problem with this album is the length. 10 songs, 24 minutes… when an album is that good, you'd like it to last a bit longer (I'm hooked! I can't quit man! Give me some more, more, more!). The good thing in having a quite short album is that you cannot put any song to the bin. Everything is to be kept and remembered and you don't fell cheated with songs which are just here to fill so more minutes. Let's hope they will find a label to release this album. If you think you're ready to be liberated, buy it. "Buy the ticket, take the ride"… 

Thomas Budzynski


Moral dilemma were formed in the summer of 2004, after lengthy rehearsals during a ridiculously hot summer we began playing gigs and have done ever since playing punk rock the way it should be played; as loud and fast as humanly possible with a strong political message, with the mentality that we'll play anywhere with electricity, from playing at 3 am to amphetamine fuelled punk rockers with make do pass out of guitar amps to every other "established" venue in between. Alongside the likes of the vibrators, sick on the bus, the Varukas, Vic Ruggerio of The Slackers, The Stockyard Stoics, The King Blues, and far too many more to name. All the while getting paid in beer, having a great time and building a solid fan-base in the capital.
