japandroids' second full-length album 'celebration rock' is one of the year's most thrilling rock records, a concise collection of songs that split the difference between the arena-ready anthems of bruce springsteen and the raw, full-throttle energy of hardcore punk. the canadian duo - guitarist brian king and drummer david prowse - made the album following a tremendously eventful period in which their first lp, 'post-nothing', became a hit among online music fans shortly after they essentially broke up, and king suffered a perforated ulcer that nearly ended his life. 'celebration rock' includes the excellent 2010 single 'younger us', a cover of the gun club's 'for the love of ivy', along with six more relentlessly over-driven tracks that will most likely keep the 'whoa-oh-ohs' going for quite some time.
