9/10 Jack 2nd February 2015

At The Drive-In has to be among the most unique and hard-to-pigeonhole bands of the '90s. They are too melodic and adventurous for hardcore (even though their level of intensity is close to bands like Refused), and although they are frequently lumped in as part of the emo genre, there is nothing explicitly "emo" about ATDI--no whiny vocals, no middle school-level poetry about lost girlfriends, and no fake irritating screams that are supposed to evoke "emotion." Relationship Of Command, the band's third and final album, is filled with fast tempos, relentlessly pounding rhythms, dense collages of dissonant sound, killer choruses, and bizarre lyrics with some sort of underlying political meaning--this is 100% ATDI, and nothing else.
