POWERBLESSINGS: Quick Guide to Heart Attacks: LP

May 20, 2014

Coliseum rock…the band, not an arena. Ripping guitar leads and dark, obtuse lyrics. Some screaming (good), some singing (eh….). The songs have enough hook to interest, but may fail to burrow into memory without repeated listening. The production sounds thin at times, which could have delivered the dynamics to make this a slam dunk, but may prevent those repeated listening. Solid effort and a band that I imagine would deliver live. I’d like to put the LP and live pieces of the puzzle together and call myself a fan.
