The Misguided - Hometown Zeros
Label: Baseline Music
Release Date: Summer 2006


Who?

The Misguided clearly know what they are doing. These dudes play melodic, true punk rock with plenty of shout-it-out choruses and powerful, catchy riffs that would get just about any mosh pit rumbling. "Hey, watch the suspenders, bro!


How Is It?

Hometown Zeros is a strong release from a formidable Southern California punk scene. Clint Johnson has a gravelly, opinionated voice, which is probably aided by the smokey run-down bars and basements The Misguided are sure to love so much. As you would expect, the release is short, and each of the 13 tracks hardly stand out. That being said, “Kid Mariposa” makes excellent use of backing vocals and a heavier, technical riff helps to differentiate the song, if only slightly. However, closer “Better Days” is arguably the strongest track. Gang chorus overload and a metal-esque guitar solo are almost enough for me to throw away every shirt I own that isn’t black. Almost.
