James is on a ROLL with these j-punk/metal albums!!
His writeup for this'n:

Do the DIRTY is more like an EP than a full album, clocking in at only six relatively short songs, regardless this is the Yankees' first break into something full and is pretty decent in its sound. Ume's distinct vocals come out mostly as a slur, but seem to give the album more of a raw edge along with a don't-give-a-fuck attitude; these are the Tokyo Yankees and they're going to hammer your ears no matter what it takes (I take back what I previously said about mostly correct English, this album is Engrish through and through, can't say it detracts the charm though).

This one's a short headbanger, nothing brilliant, but fans of the faster and slightly grittier side of old metal will find something to like.
