AllMusic Review by

On their debut full-length, Chicago’s Viza-Noir continue to draw influence from post-punk heroes like Wire, Mission of Burma, and Sonic Youth, creating an amped-up assault that is progressive and primal at once. Like their sonic progenitors, Viza-Noir are adept at creating texture as well as intellectually charged twists and turns, but these qualities meld perfectly with their ability to rock with abandon. NO RECORD builds on the strengths of the group’s debut EP, notching up the levels of songcraft and musicianship, and including highlights like “Run for Mayor” and “She’s a Machine.”
