(Go Kart Records CD)
At times, this record sounds like something you might've pulled from your mid 90's pop punk shelf. "A Symphony of Voices" however, hit the streets just this year. Musically, Guff have the right mix to please everyone - not too bubble gum sounding, but harmonious and melodic enough to play while you're carting mom around somewhere. Today's 16 year old might scoff at this, but when you've got an unreleased Steve Perry (Journey) original closing your record out - it just might be fun enough for the whole family. Cheap shots at today's Hot Topic punk crowd aside, Guff manages to pump out some pretty good tunes here and there. Most tracks, especially "Bleed Like You" and "No Gods, No Masters" are loud and fast with catchy harmonious choruses. The whole record has a very Fat Wreck Chords type of feel to it, making it just good enough to put in semi-regular rotation, but leaving me wanting for something slightly less polished.
