Monster Monster

(Underoath)

Tooth & Nail

Released on November 3, 2009

click to buy
$11.50

Formed by Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie along with guitarists Jay Vilardi and Dusty Redmon, bassist Alex Aponte and newest member, drummer Joe Musten, The Almost’s Monster Monster represents the culmination of two years of touring, with the resulting disc a melding of the group’s individual talents into a truly collaborative effort. Gillespie, who originally started the band as a side project and played all the instruments on The Almost’s first album, is thrilled the way the group began to mesh on Monster Monster, and the band itself is raring to go out and play the new songs for their rabid, loyal fan base. “This now feels like a real band,” he says. “Everyone gave up a piece of his own agenda for the good of the final result. And that’s how you end up with something special. They supplied the bricks and we built this house together.”

This is album number two on Aaron's solo venture and his second attempt at being a frontman is much more accomplished than the first. The debut album was chatchy and fun but what somewhat lacking in the song quality front to be a real keeper. This time around, the songs are much better in composition and as such they have a greater lasting effect.

Part of this improvement is due to the recruitment of a full band line-up. This brings a fresh ear into the song writing process and enables refinement of Aaron's ideas, which was something that was lacking from the last attempt. Bringing in ex-Beloved and Dead Poetic guitarist Randy into the mix has given a sense of maturity and experience to the band's sound which was so badly needed.

'Monster Monster' is a solid pop rock album, with big choruses a plenty, various mood changes and a consistent sound to hang it all together. Aaron's excellent vocal delivery, which we are all fully appreciative of from the Underoath days, is present and correct and it's almost worth getting this album just to hear a full 35 minutes of that voice.

I'm intrugued about the future of this band now that Aaron has stepped down from Underoath to concentrate his full attention on it. Couple that with the acquisition of ex-Beloved drummer Joe, and it seems as though the future could be bright for The Almost.

If the improvement between albums stays on the same trajectory as this one, we may be in for a treat when album number three comes around.
