Against Me! – Shape Shift With Me
Throughout this record you realise with Grace writing songs about relationships that the singer is more comfortable in her own skin and is less subjected to the old expectation of what herself and the band supposedly have to be. With these hard hitting tracks and up beat rhythms, this album is going to be a huge hit live at their gigs and also great in the charts. Overall this album has to be one of Against Me!’s greatest albums to date even through it isn’t as big as ‘Transgender Dysphoria Blues’ but it is worthy of being a strong entry in Against Me’s discography.
