FLASHLIGHT ARCADE: The Art of Blacking Out: CD

Jul 06, 2007

Youthful, dynamic emo, not that far away from Samiam (with just a few dashes of Thursday and Saves the Day thrown in for good measure). While this is well-done (i.e. the breakdowns all fall at the right time, the band starts and stops at the moments which this style dictates and the singer has the proper sound of yearning in his voice), well-produced (i.e. in a studio, not on a cassette recorder in a garage) and sounds as though it might go over swimmingly on the Warped Tour, this just isn’t my thing.
