The sound of Rise Against hasn’t changed since their very first album, and The Black Market is no exception. It retains the enjoyable rock passages that I love so much about Rise Against, but breaks no new ground. Do I like it? Definitely. Would I be able to differentiate the album or any of its songs from an array of other Rise Against songs? Not at all.
Nothing stands out, but nothing sounds bad. It’s just simply Rise Against. And that’s all I’m really looking for.
