Signal exhibits lashing, exuberant, driving drum rhythms, dynamic, forceful, and energetic guitar playing, and compelling, melodic, and potent vocals, proving the album stands up to the challenge presented by their incredible live performances.

This is a very good album in the post-punk, indie rock vein. While they're not necessarily breaking new ground here, they definitely have their own sound, and it's a good one. Solid musicianship all around, some stand out guitar work, and great use of the dualing vocalists ( One of the vocalists reminds me of Jim Ward from Sparta). My Favorite tracks are: Song of the Future from the Past, A Mendicant, The Wolves, and Radiation.

Don't write these guys off as your typical "post hardcore/ emo" flash in the pan. This is a hard working band that has actually been around 3 years, touring the whole time, and seen multiple line up and name changes. Since their inception originally as "The Fly By Night" and even playing one show as "Worlds End Tonight" this band has always been dedicated to making epic powerful music.

This is a collection of some of the best the Colorado scene has to offer, vocalist/bass player Tristan Shaffer (One Dying Wish), guitar player Nolan Aldridge (Last Chance Diaries), drummer (now former) Jesse Dixon (Shogun), and vocalist/guitar player James Tanner (Harrison Bergeron). It's also noteworthy to mention Timothy Cleary (One Dying Wish), who left the band during/before the recording of Kodiak and was replaced by Tanner. This who you hear on the last two tracks of the reissued "Stop When The Rain Starts" EP, which was originally only available from the band along with "Pavement Sea" and a version of "The Wolves" with Cleary on vocals.

So why delve into the band's history so extensively in a review about this album? Because it has shaped this release. This band is about where they came from and how they got here. S2N make a beautiful noise, with swooning rough melodies that will punch you in the face (there's the hook to sum up the review). Through three years of touring and making friends in several states (just check their myspace page for evidence of that) the band has crafted a wonderful album about traveling, and life on the road, but ultimately finding where you belong back home.

Tracks 1-5 start the album off with a bang, with memorable lyrics and melodic hooks like "take all your graveyard soil and drown it in whiskey," or "an homage to the spirits of the dead, to all the relics and the things we left behind." The album differs on tracks 6-9 from the opening five but this is a good thing. That being said each song stands on its own, and is treated with that epic S2N attitude, so there is no "slack off track" they all carry equal weight, if not for the listener, then at least the band. The most fantastic song on this record is the haunting "Firework Sky" which conjured up images of my own summers on the Front Range of Colorado "...and in July the celebrations in the firework sky." and ultimately placing the band back home "here at home with love that's waiting I have found the life I need." With Tristan's rough passionate vocals alternating with Jesse's smooth voice, along with the creamy guitar hooks, and the obvious presence of the bass guitar, something magical is created. Passionate, honest music. Thrown this album on and head west, because you'll want to after hearing it.
