3.0 out of 5 stars ... modern alt-metal [trans; no metal] ..., 24 Jan. 2011
By 
This review is from: A State Of Mind (Audio CD)
Ah well, never mind. See, when I received an album from a band called Lost In Vegas, and saw the seedy cover, I filled up with anticipation at the thought of some top notch sleaze metal. Then I noticed they came from Tamworth. And that knocked that right on the head. Instead, what you're getting is some modern alt-metal, which is to say not very metal at all. As for some reason modern metal bands don't seem to like metal very much.

However, disappointments aside, this is actually pretty good. It's the second release from the band - Chris Lynch on guitars and vocals, Scott Hopkins on guitars, Rob Terry on drums, and David Roach on bass - following on from their 2006 EP, "Addiction". They've brought in producer de jour, John Mitchell ((You Me At Six, Enter Shikari, Funeral For A Friend), and it certainly sounds big.

'Wash Away', the opening track, is also the best of the tracks, with some high powered riffs and a memorable chorus. It's certainly as good as anything else you would hear on Kerrap! TV and radio. Elsewhere, it's 'Looking Back' that comes closest. It's a storming track that brings Therapy? to mind. And by that I mean the good, mod-nineties Therapy? You'll find the video for it at the bottom of this review. The best of the rest is the druggy ballad, 'Chasing The Dragon', which manages to overcome its stereotypical name.

There's enough here to suggest that Lost In Vegas could make a decent fist of it in the modern metal world, and if that is your sort of thing, you should definitely check it out.
