Doesn't have enough interesting content to make it worth checking out.

I instantly liked the look of this album, with its snappy cover featuring a rather slutty, blind Lady Justice done in a smart comic book style. It hinted at something a little rebellious, maybe angry at the world, maybe putting shit to right. Such high hopes are often dashed, however, and General Greed aren't really angry young Swedes at all. Shame, as a little righteous fire is always entertaining.

Whilst the band is credited as the brainchild of Andreas Rosen and Richard Loow, in reality it's Loow who writes all the songs, sings and plays guitar, whilst Rosen contributes the bass. Hopefully he had more of an input than that to get his picture in the booklet, but that's the only credit he gets. Both come from the band Looks Like Lucy, but this spin-off project lacks the fire of LLL, who are credited with some great, passionate tracks.

Loow himself has a low vocal range that is hard to really enjoy, similar to the bloke from The Misfits but without the charm. 'Rectifying For Justice' is musically quite basic, with a fair pinch of melody and a hint of attitude in a few songs, but ultimately it's not very interesting. Tracks like 'Endless', 'Angels' and 'Never Free' have a decent pace and definite replay value, but they are counterbalanced by dull songs like 'Sweet Insanity', which made me want to kick the nearest wall or furry animal.

In the end, 'Rectifying For Justice' doesn't have enough interesting content to make it worth checking out, and even the best songs wouldn't stand out on a better album. Personally I don't find the vocals very entertaining, but it's not like Loow is a shouter or anything, he just doesn't click with me. So it's a thumbs down from me, although I would frame the cover art, if that's any consolation.
