One Win Choice - Never Suspend Disbelief
Even though I noticed that One Win Choice was a punk band, I still popped in the cd with high hopes. Recently I had reviewed a band called Paint It Black which put out a great album and Never Suspend Disbelief was recorded by none other than Nick Rotundo of Paint it Black. Unfortunately, One Win Choice didn't deliver nearly as well as Paint it Black did. At best, they are a cookie-cutter anthem-singing punk rock band.
No sound can be told apart whatsoever. Each song starts the same, continues the same, and ends the same. The drums play just about the same exact beat throughout the entire album, the guitars play mediocre chord progressions with power chord solos, and the singer is nothing more than a chanting punk rocker. The album length alone brings back my suspicions about a short record that Paint it Black once freed me of. The album clocks in at 32 minutes, and it's a good thing because I wouldn't have listened to it if it'd been any longer.
One Win Choice has uplifting lyrics and give back to their community. They certainly are idealists and are great examples for other bands, but their music doesn't provide much to redeem them. Their hearts are in the right places, but their musical talent was off hiding while Never Suspend Disbelief, was being recorded.
