Comeback Kid -Broadcasting... CD

Comeback Kid
Broadcasting... CD

Out with the old and in with the new. The vocalist change-up is probably the single most important progression for Comeback Kid, and thank God for that. See, my biggest gripe about these guys was the crow-like vocals. With Andrew now on the mic, the vocals are very dynamic, from screams, yells, and not-whiney clean singing. This guy is a very talented and strong vocalist (in addition to song writer). In the past he has written and recorded all the songs. This album sounds like he gave a little more creative power to the other band members (which isn't such a great thing). Musically, this definitely is a slight regression from intense energy of Wake The Dead (which had an awesome Skate Punk musical feel). The song structures are more interesting though with some experimenting in emo notations. The setback is the speed has dropped considerably, replaced with a majority of mid-tempo hymns. Wake The Dead was one of the few totally amazing Blasting Room sounds (with an amazing bass sound). Broadcasting has the typical flat Blasting Room sound, with dull felty kick drum, and low-gain, low-volume guitar (as most the Stevenson recordings sound like from a glorified home studio). So in some ways, this is a milestone better, and in other aspects its a step-down. Either way, I'd recommend buying this record. The track order starts with two relatively mellow songs, before exploding the energy. And to me, track flow really affects the feel of the album. So I recommend only listening to this on random mix. Highlight tracks are Give'r, In Case of Fire, and In/Tuition (which is a really strong snappy closing song).

Converge -No Heroes CD

Converge
No Heroes CD

Dare I say their first good album since The Poacher Diaries? I'm just one of the few who doesn't appreciate Converge doing the same noisy lo-fi mic-dangling-from-the-ceiling indie-rock thing every other band is turning to (after coming from a very unique past). They did great hardcore-thrash crossover back in the day. No Heroes returns to that blatant passion, with non-stop intensity and energy. First album with double bass in a long fucking time. The slow songs are actually twisting and interesting as opposed to ambient noise a first in their history). The recording quality is probably the first thing Kurt Ballou has made to sound decent since Endnote by The Hope Conspiracy (as his sound dwindled from abrasive, yet hi-fi toneful recordings, to just raw, home-studio sounds). The riffs almost never let up. Jacob screams as gnarly as ever. This is the first time I've found Ben's drumming ear-catching and actually a match to the riffs. Nate's bass tone is god-awful, but his performance is top notch. But as I said, this is the best Converge has sounded since before Jane Doe. I still don't have the same interest in Converge as I did before the Jane Doe style change, but I think this is a serious step back in the right direction.

Terror -Always The Hard Way CD

Terror
Always The Hard Way CD

After making a total pile of garbage, being One With The Underdogs, one would think Terror would never make a comeback. But then they worked with Zeus for a crystal clean and razor sharp production, and made their heaviest, most in your face songs to date. It may possibly rival Lowest of the Low. This truly swings the hammer of inner strength. Vogel will eat you alive.
