DEAR HEARTS: Grab My Hand: CD

This Belgian band plays poppier punk in the vein of The Bomb or Face To Face but weaker and without much depth. While a few of the songs are catchy, they don’t elicit much excitement. The guitar and bass are played without any passion or effectiveness. The guitar, especially, is quite low in the mix. The drumming is good but the vocals are left to carry much of the sound and they’re not that outstanding. After dozens of listens this still doesn’t elicit much of anything in me, and I doubt it will for anyone else, either.
