Pariah Piranha “People People”

This is a fun and peppy album… for a while. “Cataclysm” sounds as if the leftovers of a few Dead Kennedys, Hole and Green Day songs were mixed together to make a bowl of Bachelor Chow. Philip J. Fry would be proud.
“Hate Beast” is unsurprisingly angrier, with lead singer Tara Gordon snarling her way through the track the way the way that her namesake Nina (no relation… I think) would have done.
I didn’t know what to expect from “Reading Rainbow,” but it hasn’t let me down. “Sleight of Hand” is a tricky number that sets up good times with a simple rhythm. Everything else just falls into place after that.
“Insurance Insurance” is the last track. It’s long and has driving guitar. I don’t know. Maybe it’s like a Led Zeppelin/Aerosmith hybrid? It just feels like I am giving them too much credit by saying that. It’s an OK song, but it’s a little whiny,
Definitely go for the earlier tracks on this one. This should have been an EP because it runs out of gas at the end.
