As if the name Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! wasn't fun enough with it's unorthodox punctuation, "Taking Chances" shows what can happen when a brave soul attempts to blend traditionally-pop sounding melodies with the brutality of hardcore music. The result: an in-your-face track that manages to adequately balance light, tight vocal harmonies with aggressive group chants and heavy riffage. Today's standard for hard rock music would suggest that this one just works, folks.
