GIFT HORSE, THE: Self-titled: CD

Some real ‘90s-sounding emo, the way it sounded before it became the glam metal of this decade. Fans of Mineral, Braid, or any Crank! Records compilation would love this band. This is extremely well done and I have something of a soft spot for this sound. It’s nothing I would reach for over the Texas Is The Reason LP or anything, but it is nice to hear some emo style stuff that doesn’t totally suck for a change.
