Album Review: Fucked Up - 'David Comes To Life'
A theatrical evolution, not for the faint hearted
Thanks to ‘The Other Shoe’ and ‘The Recursive Girl’, no longer can we throw the usual old adjectives at Fucked Up and declare them just another testimony to punk rock’s penchant for rapture; their diverse, dimensional and multi-layered tale of love lost, found and endured reflects a band defined by tumultuous relations and the evolution of their fanbase. We dare you to hold them back.
