This shouldn't be considered a substitute for being in the room when Dangerous Idiots hurl hard truths into the crowd via three or four solidly played chords, but the sound is engineered carefully enough to be a suitable stopgap. What's more, frontman Aaron Sarlo's lyrics cut closer to the bone than ever, as on "He Who Has the Information Is the Leader:" "It's just a lack of information/There is no need to think the moon is the sun/Just waddle over to the Internet, but put on your thinking cap because there's a lot of garbage on there/And, don't get down/Don't let it get you down/You'll figure it out because we need you to." — Stephanie Smittle, The Arkansas Times, Dec. 22, 2016 [link]
