My Awesome Compilation are a hard working, touring band. This, their long awaited debut long player does not disappoint.
Anyone who has heard their e.p ''The View is Amazing'' will be familiar with the format - mid tempo, melodic rock music incorporating large guitars, soaring harmonies, accented with piano and synth.
''ACTIONS'' starts off wonderfully with the huge ''You Need Discipline'' and continues to keep its momentum throughout. The big difference between their two releases is that on this, the tempo is UPPED slightly . . . and to great effect.
Highlights for ME, are the aforementioned first track, lead single ''Put Up A Fight'', ''Set to Go'', ''Ask for Trouble'' and their classic albeit re-recorded version of ''As Always''.
Overall this is a breat album, that succeeds with its achingly simplistic approach to making powerful melodic music. If you manage to catch the band live you'll find they are true to their recorded sound, yet excecuted with a passion and enthusiasm that is a joy to watch.
You'd be forgiven for thinkin My Awesome Compilation are from America, but they're from Leicester! they sneak their accent in the album a touch in places too! Nice one lads.
BUY THIS ALBUM.
