Punk-rock trio Good Luck, Ugly! is incredibly tight, handling both the intensity and the dynamics of these brisk, solidly crafted tunes. The lo-fi style is appropriate for the band’s sweaty, shout-out style, reminiscent of Suicidal Tendencies, Dickies, Ramones, Blink. Are the songs short? “Good-bye” clocks in at 2 minutes flat. Equally brief is “All Right” where the guys once again adroitly handle abrupt downshifts and equally sudden bursts of energy. The strongest outing for GL,U! is “Much Brighter”; less punk in style, its appealing pop-rock hook makes it their most accessible song. Overall, some tweaks are needed to make this outfit a bit more commercially viable–– if that’s what they’re after.
