FLESH, THE: Fire Tower: CD

May 10, 2007

A nice potpourri of styles smooshed together here—a little gloomy pop, a little hip hop, a little fringy art punk—and some strong songwriting makes for a fairly unique, definitely engaging sound. The bulk of the songs here straddle a fine line between the musicians not being so busy pretentiously self-obsessed with their role as “artists” that the songs aren’t catchy and infusing the hooks with some serious edge. Ultimately, this is interesting in all the right ways.
