Album Review: One Day by Fucked Up

Great, Based on 3 Critics

Under The Radar - 85
Based on rating 8.5/10

Fucked Up's new record marks a departure from the hefty concept albums for which they're most revered and adored. While 2011's David Comes to Life and 2018's Dose Your Dreams reveled in their magnitude, length, and epic scope, One Day is a brief, brilliant fireworks display of an album, written and largely recorded in the space of a single day. Damian Abraham, razor-throated and immaculately tuneful, gives bold life to raggedly glorious, roughly anthemic songs such as "Huge New Her," the kinetic, table-smashing, knee-sliding, stranger-hugging rock 'n' roll of "Found," and the heartbreaking "Falling Right Under"--a lament for a lost friend with the painfully relatable lines, "Still remember the last time I saw you/A text sent across the theater crowd/Don't know why I never made it over/And I will always regret that now.

No Ripcord - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Known for their grand concepts, Fucked Up gives the term 'life-affirming' a whole new meaning on their sixth studio album. Their towering hardcore punk, led by gentle giant Damian Abraham, typically brims with optimism and vitality. But there's another key reason: the band recorded their shortest album to date—clocking in at 40 minutes—in only one day as if their lives depended on it.

Opinion: Excellent

The core concept of One Day is that all the individual parts were written and recorded in one day (albeit, broken up in blocks). It's a great challenge for the band because as the massive Year of the Horse and long-gestating Oberon proved, the band likes to take their time, meticulously piecing albums together bit by bit, over many years. I think back to the dynamic of Crass' Christ: the Album which the band recorded over of a year, and its follow up, Yes Sir, I will which was recorded in the same amount of time it takes to listen to it.
