BRIDGEWORK: World Disappears: CD

May 26, 2008

I’d believe you if you told me that this CD had been lost in the mail for ten years, because it sounds exactly like what was coming out on Crank or Revelation around ’96 or ’97—back when post-hardcore sounded like Sunny Day Real Estate mixed with alternative rock, and emo wasn’t quite on the radio yet. The problem with a lot of those bands was that hardcore dudes didn’t always know how to write rock melodies, and a lot of their new projects were hookless and monotonous. Bridgework has the same shortcomings, but gets a few points for making me feel like I’m in eleventh grade again, getting dumped by straight edge girls. –CT Terry
