It seems that Ben Weasel and company have matured a great deal upon the release of Anthems for a New Tomorrow. Now playing as a four-piece, Screeching Weasel aren't slowing down with their continual aggravations toward everyday life and all-around stupid people. Songs like "I'm Gonna Strangle You" and "Rubber Room" continue in that tradition, but what's different are the callings for a social change on "A New Tomorrow" and the lack of individuality in American culture with "I, Robot." Not as raw and punchy as their previous album, Wiggle, but with the slick production and ability to jam keyboards in the mix without sounding "artsy," Screeching Weasel remain one step ahead of the game.
