12 The Decline - Nofx The Decline - Nofx Cover Art

It would be the punk rock Dark Side of the Moon, if it was an album instead of an EP.

How can you make so much out of only ONE 18-minute song? Beyond me.
This EP-long song which took six months to make deals with themes of mass manipulation, death, murder, depression, addiction, sucide, poverty, propaganda, gun ownership, loss of individuality, and overall, simply The Decline.
Plus, very impressive intrumentally. Cool guitar work (includes a wah solo, pretty rare for a punk band), energetic drumming of a good quality as far as punk goes, vocals are perfectly crafted with precise background vocals and vocal harmonies, even sound effects are used, plus a trombone, and of course, the DAMN BASS. So many different licks, riffs, bridges, and all in differet styles and tones. Perfect; I cannot do anything else while I go through the 18 minutes of this song. A pure trip. - JoLeKosovo
