Japandroids attempt to dismantle the theory that artists, like twenty-somethings, need to develop things like balance, pacing, and maturity, opting for an adrenaline-fueled forty minutes of non-stop riffage, distortion and a complete and utter refusal to grow up. And like you would expect from a bunch of aggressive kids with guitars and a penchant for yell-alongs, a lot of that attitude is explicit.The album begins with the sound of fireworks, and first song "The Nights of Wine and Roses" immediately makes the claim that we should keep smoking and drinking until we have something to live for -- the quintessential false dilemma of young adulthood.
