Reconstruction Site
The Weakerthans

Sonically located in the finest tradition of Punk, The Weakerthans walk an archipelago of influences from rock to folk to alt-country and beyond, led by lyrics tutored in the best of contemporary literature and progressive politics.

Their third full-length recording, Reconstruction Site (Epitaph, 2003), mixed by Adam Kasper (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age) and produced by the legendary Ian Blurton, is their most musically cohesive and lyrically ambitious effort to date. Reconstruction Site follows the success of Left and Leaving (G-7/Sub-City, 2000), and Fallow (G-7/Sub-City, 1997)--records that garnered appreciation and acclaim from listeners around the world.

I absolutly love this album. I could stop listening to it ever since I bought it a few months ago. This very creative punk rock mixed with some folk & I'll admit a little country. This album is awesome!
