5.0 out of 5 stars Evans Blue, 14 Aug 2008
Mr. J. C. Hull (Edinburgh) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Pursuit Begins When This Portrayal of Life Ends (Audio CD)
With the over abundance of Hard Rock bands available, it is extremely hard to keep up with them all. The tendancy is to write the same songs over and over again, and the bands more often than not sound very similar. Evans Blue, while not being completely original, are a band that stand out among the crowd. Matisyn's voice is the first thing that will stand out to most. His lyrics are thoughtful, provocative, and sympathetic, and the strength of which he sings them is divine. He manages to bring the emotion across to an outstanding extent - which coupled with crunching guitar chords, and clever riff play make Evans Blue a joy to listen to from start to finish.

The album has enough change to keep you going until the end, ending with lead single 'The Pursuit'. The sound varies acceptably, not so much that the overall theme is diminished, but enough to make each song sound different - and they all have one thing in common: fantastic moldious choruses and of course honest lyric play.

The band obviously base their sound on bands they like themselves, but then try to improve on those sound by taking away the things that don't work so much, and changing them to something unique to Evans Blue. Obvious similarities would be Taproot, Breaking Benjamin, 10 Years, and even A Perfect Circle.

The only gripe I have, is that the album no longer comes with the bonus DVD that had their entire first album LIVE Unplugged in concert as an addition. But that won't take away from the enjoyment of this album - and you can always just head over to Youtube and watch the clips on there.
