perhaps the fundamental question when it comes to modern
punk rock is this: what exactly is the artist intending to
achieve? usually, it’s one of two things – either to
question authority and at least to attempt to unnerve the
ruling class, or else it’s simply to play pop songs at a
speed in contravention of sensible limits.

to their credit, chicago’s rise against manage to place a
foot in both of these camps. the ominously titled endgame,
the group’s sixth album in 10 years, is a muscular
collection of high-energy punk that, amid the flurry,
manages to display a level of high-mindedness that is
becoming increasingly rare. the sound of the suburban
middle-class, too often this is a genre the narrative
concerns of which have become colloquial, even mundane; as
if the fact that in the past few years the great
institutions of state have appeared no more secure than a
secret in a soap opera is nothing compared to the concerns
of getting a date, or getting even with someone you dated
once upon a time. with topics ranging from the bp oil
spill in the gulf of mexico to the perceived unravelling
of the american body politic, if nothing else at least
rise against have a view of their country that extends
beyond the boundary of a white picket fence.

even so, while endgame is a strong album, and certainly an
honourable one, it does lack an ingredient that might be
identified as magic. the problem with playing songs twice
as fast as the average is that these songs last only half
as long. by such a measure, the 12 compositions featured
here should be out of the listener’s hair in less than 25
minutes. as it is, in the name of progression rise against
have stretched things out a bit, meaning some of the
selections here do overstay their welcome by about a
minute and a half. that the essence of these songs is
usually as strong as the identity of the band that wrote
them means that no great harm is done. even so, endgame is
not quite as short, or sharp, or shocking as it otherwise
might have been.
