A band from the UK at last! This is a compilation of tracks from various compilations, demos, 7 inches, etc. These lads are busy writing their new album, so in the meantime they have given us this CD of early work and quite impressive it is too! Listening to this you would think this is a proper full length album. It is well written, well produced and well performed. They definitely have got a post hardcore/emo thing going on here combining Shudder To Think (duh!), Fugazi and Bluetip with elements of Jets To Brazil and Sunny Day Real Estate. They definitely have that American sound to them. Introspective and sensitive lyrics are also prevalent here, I miss you when you hide your true self, But kissing, with feeling to him dont mean a thing, very much emo influenced. However the vocals are emotive and passionate without sounding annoying and whiney like Saves the Day. The songs are also quite short and dont drag on forever like say Jets to Brazil last effort which at times got tedious beyond belief. The acoustic moments sort of remind you of Dashboard Confessional at times. The best thing about this album is that it is quite understated and doesnt go embarrassingly over the top vocally or otherwise, unlike certain US acts who should know better. If your into post hardcore/emo type stuff then you could do a lot worse than this.
