One of the most striking things about the collection is the lyricism. There’s emotion & personality, but also a fly-on-the-wall sort of feeling to it all.
The music has been thoughtfully crafted & catered to reflect the importance of the concept and the true power that these feelings can have over people.
There’s a lot to appreciate about this few minutes of music, the lasting effect of which is that you’re likely to come back and listen to it several times.
The song has the kick & bounce of any great rock & roll track, but it’s presented in an almost acoustic sort of way, which is great to listen to.
This album is like a ‘how to’ on modern life, a run through of the way things are. It’s fantastic, from start to finish. You can’t predict a single moment.
There are distinct sounds throughout this collection that remind you of what a special project it is. This is music created by a unique & passionate artist.
I’m a nonconformist & a contrarian. People like to be miserable & melancholy or own self-deprecation like it’s a religion. That’s unattractive to me.
The hook spirals around in your mind, building & building with the music; even in the aftermath of the audio – you’re still caught up in the song.
As the song moves forward, the softness evolves into a mass of energy & togetherness; highlighting some really skillful songwriting and musicianship.
Those guitars run away with themselves, creating this vibrant & chaotic ambiance; this world of instrumental sound within which you can really drift away.
A superbly manic and captivating set of visuals to accompany the distorted and riff heavy mind bender that is ‘Chaos Is My Middle Name’.
If that opening riff with it’s retro touch of funk doesn’t get you hooked – the longer you listen for; something, if not everything, undoubtedly will.
