The Expendables - Prove It -2010-
(Reggae, Punk, Metal)

From: Santa Cruz

"Prove It the new album from the Expendables, four piece from Santa Cruz, CA ushers in a large arena rock sound coupled with a laid back California groove that issues new blood in an era littered with fashionable screaming emo bands, American Idol rejects, novice 3 chord pop punk, and single note solo rip-offs. The Expendables forge hessian rock, reggae, dub, punk, and fist pumping dual guitar riffs into a unique fusion that pushes the envelope musically with a product as groovy as the funky northern California beach town they grew up in." For followers of the reggae/rock scene you know this album has been in the works for quite some time and is a huge step forward in production value, but the material itself doesn't immediately blow you away, but you are not left totally disappointed either. While a little more mainstream and polished than ever before Prove It does have it's moments with some very solid tracks.
For fans of Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution and of course Sublime.
