LIGHTEN UP: Absolutely Not: CD

Jul 29, 2010

This is some all right posicore stuff that is built for sing-alongs on pile-ons. It is, of course, peppered with a few decidedly mosh parts, which LU manages to keep melodic. Twelve songs in seventeen minutes, nearly one-fourth of which is dedicated to an outro on the last track that just repeats (which I would not think gets played live). Aurally, there’s nothing all that offensive but nothing too memorable. When all’s said and done, this was a bit better than I thought a boring-looking hardcore disc with a one-sheet would be, but that isn’t saying very much.
