Every Time I Die - The Big Dirty
To some peole, Every Time I Die just sounds like complete garbage. But to me and a lot of other fans, Every Time I Die is a goldmind of brilliance. The lyrics are amazing and unlike some songs that are out now, these songs actually have meaning behind them. Keith Buckley's screams sound to have a shaky feeling to them, but thats what makes them amazing. The Big Dirty seems to have more of a southern rock feeling to it, which is a great switch up for Every Time I Die, because they make it work for them.
No Son Of Mine is a great opener track because not only does it sound amazing, but it has great lyrics and has great guitar and drums backing it. 'Bite your tongue! Who taught you those words!? Blaspheme! When you're under my roof! Don't ever say rock and roll, don't you ever say rock and roll.' When those lyrics are placed with the heavy guitar riffs in your ear, it's a perfect time to start throwing down.
Letherneck is the second song I would like to point out, because it definitely shows off a new style of Every Time I Die. The older style of Every Time I Die had plenty of screaming, which is amazing. But Letherneck shows that Keith Buckley has the ability to sing, and for the genre of music he is in, he sings well. Rendez-Voodoo is another song which does the best job of showing the southern rock side of this album and the almost hardcore side of Every Time I Die. It splits the screaming and the singing into two parts, so you can really see how talented and how much potential this band has.
The last track I want to mention from The Big Dirty, is their closing track Imitation Is The Sincerest Form of Battery. A shorter song, clocking in at 2:29, but thats just enough time to get the point across. It's a great song, which makes the vocal repetition of saying 'my job here is done.' And the closing line of The Big Dirty has to be the greatest of all.
'It is better to destroy, then to create what is meaningless. So the picture will not be finished.'
