I honestly can’t believe that Anti-Flag are still around because I’ve been listening to them on and off since their Die For The Goverment days. “Fabled World” starts on a familiar tone, street-smart and catchy.  “Sky Is Falling”, “Walk Away” and “Set Yourself on Fire” attempt to dig outside of their usual blueprint (fast, snotty and political). “All of the Poison, All of the Pain” is a gem with plenty of naughty words. “Without End” and “Believer” are excellent as well. Anti-Flag seem stuck in a holding pattern with a clash of old and new styles. There’s also too much filler (“To Hell With Boredom”..really?) and it offers nothing new. You can do better when it comes to punk in this day and age.
