After their first LP The Answer established themselves as a band that perhaps were not great, but they rocked, they were fun to listen to and awesome live. This second effort shows them trying to branch out from the pounding fast 70's style stadium rock that brought them so many fans. The experiments bring mixed results. The quite-verse-loud-chorus Why'd you Change your Mind works. Cormac singing in a lower key on Cry Out works. The attempt at producing a quiet potential radio friendly song that is Comfort Zone doesn't work, it's weak, and by far the worst track on the album. Though it's nice to hear some more variety on this record, Everyday Demons works best when The Answer stick to the sound that served them so well on Rise. By that I mean big 70's rock anthems that would get a club or stadium jumping, the first 3 songs on the album being a prime example. I cannot decide which record I prefer but Everyday Demons seems less amateurish (apart from the terrible album artwork) and if the band keep honing their craft The Answer could be name we shall not soon forget.
