Coming to a new band is, for me, like trying a completely new dish. If I really want to give it a fair go, each mouthful has to be savoured and contemplated carefully. Otherwise it's like disregarding it simply because it contains something horrible like, say, liver. When it comes to a band like We Are The Ocean, merely glancing at the titles of the songs on Cutting Our Teeth, their debut album, might cause me to be hasty in categorising them as my musical equivalent of liver.
Let's get one thing straight though. We Are The Ocean have a market, and they know how to deliver what that market craves. This Essex five piece are all clean-cut, well dressed and good looking. Teenage girls must love 'em, and I admire them for that - I know I am probably none of those things.
It's easy to see why album opener 'Look Alive' is the first single. It's catchy; the main hook being the easy-to-remember choral lyrics, handled by rhythm guitarist Liam Cromby, and is an anthem for disaffected teenagers if ever I heard one. But it's main vocalist Dan Brown, in my opinion the stronger of the two, who yelps out his lines with enthusiastic vigour and really holds my attention. My only real criticism is his range - most of his vocals are monotonal, which detracts somewhat from the heavier sections of We Are The Ocean's material, which is a shame, because I feel that's where they have missed their calling. The opening to '(I'll Grab You by the) Neck of the Woods' is perfect post-hardcore, but unfortunately these moments are few and far between.
For me though, their biggest failing is in the lyrics themselves. Maybe I'm just a little far beyond the angst of my teenage years but most, if not all of the ten tracks on offer here are woefully self-indulgent and offer little hope.

Bought this a while back, didn't want to review it too soon in case it grew on me. It didn't really. I think this band rely more on their haircuts and teenage girls to make their money than their music. Don't get me wrong, a few of the songs on here I quite like - it's just all the 'gap-fillers' sound exactly the same; a depressing slur. If you have the singles already, I wouldn't bother with buying the album personally.

Usually with a double album, you will perhaps get a decent first CD and then a pretty poor second disc but not in this case as the second disc is made up of We are the Ocean's earlier EPs which are at least as good as the album and quite possibly better. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes alexisonfire or funeral for a friend.

'Cutting Our Teeth' is pretty much the definition of a 'solid album'. There's no bad songs on it, and it's mainly just a collection of
great post-hardcore songs. There's plenty of catchy choruses, searing lead guitars and pounding drums and this is all very well. The real draw here is the vocals, particularly Liam Cromby's clean vocals. He sounds almost identical to Dallas Green of Alexinsonfire at times, although not quite as jaw-dropping as the legend himself. He's still pretty damn impressive though. Dan Brown's vocals aren't quite as good. He's at his best when he's all-out screaming the lyrics, but the tuneless cleans he does like in the verse of 'look alive' aren't too enjoyable to listen to. That's just my opinion though.
There are two main things that put me off this album. The first is the fact the band refuse to take any risks whatsoever. There's no experimentation here at all, each songs just contains some nice vocal interplay and some awesome lead guitars. Nothing special is going on here. The only tracks that really stand out are 'Look Alive', 'These Days, I Have Nothing' and the closer, 'This is Called my Home'.
Secondly, the production, although it does suit the streamlined, fast-paced style the band play, just doesn't do it for me. The rhythm guitars are way too quiet, so there's no beefy riffs going on at any point in the album. there's also waaaaay too much reverb put on the album too. Pretty much every moment features some distant, echoey, guitars or vocals. It makes the overall sound very bland. Again, I guess that's just my opinion, it might sound great to other people.
Overall, although this a pretty solid, tight release, nothing really spectacular is done. If that's all you want though, then by all means get it. You won't be disappointed, but you won't be blown away either. I suggest 'Crisis', by Alexisonfire, as a way better alternative, or get WATO's self titled EP, which is much more awesome.

In my younger days there was nothing I liked more than going to sweaty gigs and concerts, with all the sweaty, sweaty people and bash one out with alexisonfire and the likes. Sadly, now that I have come of age (so to speak) I realise I just can't be seen doing that anymore.

Anyway, this special edition with second album, which strangely enough has more songs than the actual album - is amazing!!! What a surprise! Really brings back a lot of memories. The harmonies and mixed screemo mashing are excellent. Right up there with alexisonfire and the likes.

Fantastic!
