SCARLET LETTER, THE: How is Your Heart?: CD

Sincere, well-intentioned hardcore. Sadly, heart only takes a band so far; memorable music needs to carry the music for the remainder of the journey and that’s where this stumbles. It’s not bad, but it isn’t memorable. Besides, I’ve had an issue with the idea of writing an essay about what a song means that’s longer than the song is for some time now.
