Rush To Relax - Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

On its third full-length, Rush to Relax, Australian quartet Eddy Current Suppression Ring expand on the simple, effective blueprint that made its first two albums such word-of-mouth hits among underground rock, punk, and garage listeners. With that in mind, it would be easy to write off ECSR as simply a punk band -- or go one genre further and call them a "garage punk" band -- but it would ultimately be lazy. Yes, the band's first two albums are filled with tough, tight rock songs built on raw, buzzing guitars, Stoogey raunch, and that uniquely Aussie musical intensity.

It took Eddy Current Suppression Ring just six studio hours to craft a follow up to their sophomore LP, Primary Colours. That's less time than most Americans will spend at work in a day. While that pace created a final product much less polished than the band's previous work, Rush to Relax is also a more accurate, interesting sonic articulation of the band's frenetic frontman, Brendan Suppression.
