Drexel's side on this split is definitely the one that I listen to most. Drexel play with such sincerity and play an un-genre-able (new word?) style of punk. They have pop-punk, emo, and hardcore influences, maybe even a "ska"-ish influence now and then too. The vocals switching of vocals from Aaron to Mark and vice versa make this very listenable. "BCM" is my favorite song. How can you not like the one minute long introduction. "It's ten o'clock again, and I'm stuck here..." you know the rest. Then from the quiet, soothing guitar intro comes a sudden blast of punk. Oh so good. Buy this CD for Drexel, even if you don't like Big D.
Tracks: 1. Praise on Them 2. BCM 3. Shoe 4. You Wanted It 5. Big Black 6. Nutshell 7. Allright 8. Lies 9. Honestly 10. Promises

Drexel are by far the punkest band on Fork in Hand. But they're not punk in the "punk rock sense." They have so many influences. They're not pop-punk, they're not emo-punk, they're not hardcore-punk, but they have a little of all rapped into one CD. They're influences are varied, as can be seen by their choice of covers: Kermit the Frog & Minor Threat. Everybody should not be allowed into any shows without this CD...unless of course, they're going to the show to buy it.
Tracks: 1. Only One 2. Allston Throne 3. Since Yesterday 4. Timing 5. Costello's 6. The Rainbow Connection (Kermit the Frong) 7. Walden Pond 8. Steve 9. Christy 10. Go 11. Short One 12. Screaming at a Wall (Minor Threat) 13. Wonderland 14. Waiting for a Train 15. So Far Away
