3.0 out of 5 stars
Not for everyone...., 31 Mar 2006
I bought this album on a whim. There are some good points to it and at the same time there are points that can really drive people off it.
The album itself is a very interesting piece of hardcore. The heavy guitars and pounding drum beats are technically very good. The introductory track puts you right in the mindset.
Unfortunately, most of the tracks do blend into each other. While some may welcome short songs becoming one large piece of work, you feel somewhat cheated out of 15 songs when your getting around 10.
Then there is the sound of the album. Its good for the punkie sound it is, but not to everyones tastes. The heavy overdrive on guitars seems very off beat to the thrash drumming and the (at points) quite funky bass. One saving grace is the voice of their very attractive lead singer. However her voice is often lost like a sparrow in a storm.
Buy this if you want to give something new a try or are really into that new-wave punk revolution. If your not sure, or it doesnt sound quite to your taste, then definately buy "Adventure', which is absolutely the main highlight of the album.
