OMAHA: Touch ‘Em All, Joe: CD

Sep 17, 2015

When punk broke into the mainstream in the ‘90s and ‘00s, it sometimes felt like there was a giant factory somewhere churning out carbon copied bands of the hot sound of the moment. Toronto, Ontario’s Omaha sounds like a band manufactured in the same factory. The riffs are clean and polished, without a hint of grit. The vocals are equally clean-sounding, with just a hint of angst. While some people might be into this kind of sound, I found this record to be a tad homogenous. Without looking at the tracklisting or the number counter on the CD player, it was difficult for me to distinguish one song from another. I think that if Omaha get a bit more varied in their sound they’d have potential, but this release just couldn’t hold my attention.
