Quick over view...I'll definitely be in the race for editorial review. But I think the thoughts I would've used on my editorial I'll use here in a skimming of the disc. Think this review is gonna take a few days flat out.
Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue. The bad cliches don't get any better when the roomie was the one who splashed these guys in my face some 14-16 months ago. So when their sophomore major release comes out within two years of their original passion and success, ya worry.
Ya worry things are a bit rushed, you worry for the sake of losing another faovrite artist. Do they take a mold of prior release and stay afloat or do they bang out something just a bit stronger, or a bit different. Let's find out....
Track five, wow thats some roar they start off on. Nothing like they've ever recorded. But this songs stays stagnant. Track seven starts poppy metallic buns, and has a calm but strong bass lead stroke of strings.
Alright, track two the first track I've heard and wen't wow, I like that and will come back to say a word for. Though the record starts out similiar from song to song, bouncy but statically charged tempoed metal all stampeding in what seems so familiar. You can't explain how important Matisyn's voice is to the group. But the outro of this song simply proves this album will be the only let down when down the road. That ability to just say fuck it, and end something soft and cuddly with a stabbing motion of guitars and percussion, it's just unique at this level.
As generic as this album sounds right now, I have every expectation this album will grow on me like a The Cure record. Cheesey, but chanceable....
