Four Letter Lie - Let Your Body Take Over
There is nothing new about the Four Letter Lie debut release, Let Your Body Take Over. The good part about it, is that the band fits into the whole music genre theme that Victory Records has going on for them. If you were a fan of Underoaths sophomore release They're Only Chasing Saftey, then you will notice distinct similarities between that style and Four Letter Lie. To put their style quite simply, if Silverstein and Underoath had a baby, it would be Four Letter Lie.
As far as music goes, the album has a couple of good hooks as far as guitar and bass. But only a few. Unfortunately, that doesn't make the album all that great. The vocals are about average. The screaming is below average in my own opinion. It also sounds like there is too much distortion on the microphone, because I doubt his scream really sounds like that. The singing is the best part of the entire album. Kevin Skaff definitely has talent in his singing ability, and there probably would not have been a better choice for a singer within this band.
The best songs on the album have to be Feel Like Fame, It Was A Business Doing Pleasure, and Rocky Loves Emily. That doesn't leave much for this album to offer anyone. But if you're into the entire post hardcore feeling genre, then maybe Four Letter Lie is for you.
