When I first heard of Vex Red, I thought "oh God, no" Ridiculously touted with tags such as the "new Nirvana", I actively avoided them. Then I heard Can't Smile and Clone Jesus and thought, "these guys aren't that bad" I bought the album, enjoyed it, then the same people that built them up, threw them back down. The fickle music industry...
Start With A Strong And Persistant Desire is different from Nickelback and their ilk. It blends in an industrial side with it. Terry Abbot's vocals remind me of Chris Hall's and like Hall, he is a very talented vocalist who is better than he is giving credit for. Their one fault is that they don't use their potential enough. They don't exploit the fact that they have three guitarists enough. The drummer is very good but he doesn't show it enough. Hopefully, these talents will be bought out in future albums
Stand out tracks are the chilling Itch, the mental fuzz of Can't Smile, the raw emotion of Bully Me and the quiet/loud mixture of Dermo. There is a talent there... A talent that needs to be worked on to achieve their full potential.
It could have beem better and that is a promising thought for an already decent band...
