REVIEW – The 45 ADAPTERS’ latest album, ‘Unstoppable,'”‘ is a pulsating blend of punk rock fervor and melodic sensibility that captivates from the first note. The band’s lineup—founding singer Gerrard “Pickabar” Lindsay and bassist Carlos Congote, joined by new recruits—brings a wealth of experience and energy, resulting in a collection of tracks that are both emotionally resonant and undeniably danceable. From the moment “Unstoppable” kicks off, listeners are drawn into a sonic landscape where pogo dancing and chanting become inevitable.

The album opens with the title track “Unstoppable,” a high-energy anthem that sets the tone for what’s to come. “Coming Up Empty” follows with its catchy hooks that linger in your mind long after the song ends. “But I Can’t” provides a moment of introspection, inviting listeners to close their eyes and dream.

“86400” showcases the band’s prowess with pounding drums, thumping bass, and classic punk rock vocals that drive the track forward. “Save The Day” is a pop-punk gem that reels you in with its irresistibly catchy melody. “Guilty By Participation” and “Bent And Broken” delve into emotional territories, weaving poignant memories into their lyrics.

“Refuse to Die” is a foot-tapping, chant-worthy track that will have fans clapping along. “Colder” impresses with its strong vocals, catchy riffs, and a rhythm section that keeps the energy high. “Con Man From Queens” offers a groove-laden experience, perfect for swaying and getting lost in the melodies.

The album rounds off with “Those That Quit,” a mosh-inducing, thrash-about track that epitomizes the raw, sweaty energy of punk rock. “Are You Down” closes the album on a high note, with a tune so catchy it will stay in your head for days.

With its relentless pace and powerful hooks, “Unstoppable” stands as a testament to 45 ADAPTERS’ ability to craft songs that are both raw and refined. The album showcases a diverse range of tracks, each with its unique flair, yet all tied together by a common thread of infectious energy and punk rock ethos. As the final notes of “Are You Down” fade, the lasting impression is one of an album that not only entertains but also leaves a mark with its memorable melodies and heartfelt lyrics. “Unstoppable” is more than just an album; it’s a celebration of punk rock’s enduring spirit and its ability to unite and inspire.
