Incredible but samey,
This review is from: Box of Secrets (Audio CD)
This album should have come out almost a year ago, but legal issues and foot dragging from the label have delayed, and as a result, it's been basically dumped on the market without any marketing or promotion. As such, it will probably go largely forgotten.
This would be a real shame, though: the Box of Secrets contains some incredible tunes: the songs in the middle in particular are incredible, from the storming "I Wish I Was Someone Better", through the yelping of "Take the Weight" and "ADHD", the American alt-rock inspired "This Is Not For You" and the danceable "It's Getting Boring By the Sea".
Where this album suffers though is at the opening and closing - generic slowies that all blend into each other. If you can get past these, though, Box of Secrets is a very strong début album from an interesting band.
