ON THE MIGHT OF PRINCES: Where You Are and Where You Want to Be: CD

May 10, 2007

This is indie-post-hardcore stuff that leans towards emo without becoming completely whiney. I like some of the transitions but think At The Drive In still rules ‘em. These four Long Island screamers play heavy stuff but still retain a melody. I personally like the quiet interludes but think the screamed vocals are a bit repetitive. There aren’t too many fast and furious tracks on here—its mostly mid tempo. I suggest this for folks who like the idea of mixing June of ’44-style spacey parts, Sunny Day Real Estate melody vocals, and a little dash of angst.
