Best of Metal 2017: #9 Quicksand-Interiors

Interiors was the big reunion for Quicksand that was nearly 20 years in the making.  I wasn’t even aware of Quicksand during their original stint together, so my anticipation for this album was nil.  However, I’m sure that fans of the band were out of their minds with joy upon hearing the final product.  This is just a super solid ball of well constructed post-punk songs.  It’s just catchy as hell.  You’ll find yourself subconsciously head-boppin’ along to all of these songs.  It’s impossible not to.  It is that infectious.
