ALBUM REVIEW: Decade – Pleasantries

Decade's debut release Good Luck was a frantic and messy foray into pop punk. It was released at a time where the modern wave of pop punk was teetering on breaking into the mainstream market. The album was firmly root in cathartic angst while being tinged by hints of alt-rock melody. However, their latest release Pleasantries drops this pop punk façade in favour of an alt-rock sheen.
