What else can be said about Philly’s favorite sons that hasn’t been said in the past year? 2008 was huge for hardcore and as usual Dr. Dan Yemin was at the forefront. Kicked off be a crazy weekend in the basement of the Church, New Lexicon takes every rule in the book and breaks them into a million little pieces. From the introductory feedback of “The Ledge” to the singalong ending of “Shell Game Redux,” New Lexicon alternately kicks your face in and blows your mind. With anthematic hardcore songs, electronic segues and everything in between, this is one record sure to stay on turntables for years.
