Starting Line ~ Say It Like You Mean It
Top Customer Reviews
THIS ALBUM RULES,BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you're looking for some furious, edgy punk then I'd suggest you leave this one on the shelf. On the other hand, if you want an album filled with upbeat melodies and infectious hooks that will have you jumping around your room, then give starting line a go. Once you've listened, you'll see that the starting line are much more than 'just another pop punk band'.
I have to say, it's nowhere near ground breaking stuff.....at all. More mature than Blink 182, more up-beat than The Ataris, but still pretty much the same stuff. In fact, at one point I didn't even notice when my playlist transitioned between TSL and The Ataris.
That's the only bad thing I can say about the album.....it's just......generic. In fact I've listened to this album at least 8 times over, compared to the...oh....TWICE that I listened to the Ataris album I bought at the same time, and that's a very good album. That's got to stand for something.
If you're looking to expand your musical horizons, don't bother.
If you're looking for more of the same, and a safe purchase, this album is for you.
Produced by Mark Trombino (who also produced Blink 182's classic Dude Ranch album) it is pack full of catchy 'pop punk' songs but with bit more feeling than some of their counterparts i.e Sum 41. My personal best track off the album is 'This Ride' which features Nate Barcalow of Finch, another Drive-thru band.
It only gets 4 out of 5 stars because I feel they sound too much like NFG and the sound is also slightly overproduced, but if none of that bothers you, than sit back, listen and enjoy.
