Complete your Titus Andronicus collection. Still in a punk mode we turn our attention back to Titus Andronicus with their first album, The Airing Of Grievances (2008). It’s interesting to compare this album to their 2015 release, The Most Lamentable Tragedy. On this first album the band is much rawer and the recording less polished. This works well for a punk recording. You can tell from the track titles and song lyrics that the band members are not dullards. I quite like intellectual punk-music that makes you think. On the band’s blog they state Titus Andronicus take their name from a minor Shakespearean tragedy, not, as many people.
The Airing of Grievances. Troubleman Unlimited. Before writing the bulk of his legendary canon of plays and sonnets, William Shakespeare penned the charmingly flawed revenge tragedy Titus Andronicus. Due to its laughable bombast and over-the-top violence, its influence on contemporary culture has emerged mainly in dark comedies like Sweeney Todd or "South Park", and many Shakespeare scholars still balk at seriously analyzing the work. Of course, all these factors make the play a perfect moniker for an indie band as violent, overblown, and irreverent as Glen Rock, New Jersey's Titus Andronicus.

Titus Andronicus, however, have an anger that is fully realized, and they use it efficiently on The Airing of Grievances. Titus Andronicus, to begin with, are extremely literate. Numerous literary and pop-culture references can be found throughout the album, including a reading from the Shakespearean play from which the band derives their name.
Listening to Titus Andronicus' debut record, The Airing of Grievances, makes you think that maybe the band recorded the album in much the same way the Kops chased criminals. It's a rollicking, rambling, yowling mess of a record framed by the band's half-baked literary ambitions (check the band's name and references to Cormac McCarthy and Albert Camus) and vocalist Patrick Stickles' yelping vocals (which are oddly reminiscent of Mick Jones at his most stray cat-like). At their best on tracks like the title song and "Fear and Loathing in Mahwah, NJ," Titus Andronicus sound like Bright Eyes with their guitars plugged right into the wall socket or Arcade Fire with fewer lessons but more consumption of cheap beer. The group's untrammeled, enthusiastic attack covers up almost every tiny flaw in the album's design.
