5.0 out of 5 stars You'll Be Amazed!, 9 April 2007
This review is from: From Them, Through Us, To You (Audio CD)
Madina Lake - Mest meets My Chemical Romance, a hybrid of pure passion and ingenious talent - simply punk-pop in a new light. Madina Lake are evidence of an evolution in the pop punk scene and a great discovery from "metal" label Roadrunner records. `From them, through us, to you' not only has the energy and fun other bands such as sugarcult and fall out boy offer, but a more lyrically intimate and darker side is expressed in certain songs, House of Cards being one of them.

Striking guitar work offset by a palpable mix of both melodic and screamo vocals that Madina Lake certainly manage to make more appealing than most bands. Aggression, blended with soulful melody show how a band, although newly discovered, can reveal their limitless potential. Attention is grabbed from the beginning riffs of the album and prolonged to the last chord. Even songs such as `House of Cards' and `One Last Kiss' considering their play stats on the box, Kerrang and Scuzz, have not seemed to lose their edge and appeal.

The album has the distinct ability to compliment most scenes of music, throbbing `Adalia' fits the rock scene perfectly with its juxtaposing guitar passages, while other songs such as `Now or Never' would easily sneak their way into the pop charts.

This album is truly a masterpiece, with a band that show extreme potential to develop even further and produce more outstanding tracks. This album is big and it is definitely realistic to say that these guys will stay big for a good dam while longer.
