Enough – Common Visions
These are not the best of times for aging youth crew purists like myself. The new version of Double Cross e-zine seems to more about skateboarding than about the coolness of ’88 bands like Gorilla Biscuits and Youth Of Today. The times that every weekend I would see at least one band do a Chain Of Strength cover are long gone and especially in the Netherlands the youth crew has seem to go dull. That’s probably why Nashville’s Enough didn’t play a Dutch show on their European tour with Norway’s Evolve. Too bad cause I do think their Common Visions record is a pretty solid release. And I would have liked to see the band on stage. (And do a Chain cover?)
Enough kind of remind me of European bands like Sportswear and Mainstrike with a bit of True Colors and a shot of Youth Of Today. I can’t recall coming across another American youth crew band which sounded so European. To some this may be a bad thing, but I dig it. Not every band has to sound like Chain Of Strength. The songwriting is solid and so are the lyrics which touch subjects you might expect from a band like this. Yes, Enough has me fingerpointing across the room and temporarily forgetting the sad state of Dutch youth crew in 2012.

Pretty solid band, never heard about them before.
