The lead singer/songwriter of Budapest John Garrison, sounds really upset about something! 'Too blind to hear' features ten tracks and he sounds equally heartbroken and torn apart in every one, the music is slow, guitar based rock laden with string sections and moving choruses, they sound like Coldplay but with more sensitive lyrics and apparently a lot more sadness! It is however, a very accomplished album, all ten tracks are excellent, in particular 'Evade the pain' and the opening track "Is this the best it gets?" It will make you cry if you're not careful but I find it very relaxing and the insightful lyrics every now and then will sum-up a bad mood, for example "Life gets in the way of what I want to say.."
Pretty intense stuff but brilliant at the same time! You may not have heard of Budapest yet but I think they're heading for the big time, as were Coldplay or Radiohead at this stage of their careers, these are quality songs, definitely worth spending time and money on!
