Album Review

Well what can I say? I had a chance to review the first full-length album of these guys and actually liked it. Now listening to the sophomore creation entitled ‘Impossible Possible’ I notice again the same swift, pushing compositions with simple but catchy choruses, good vocals and not too complicated melodies. If this constancy is a plus for the band or the musicians still need some intricate arrangements or profound lyrics, everyone will definitely decide for themselves. But the true advantage of the album is the possibility to decide whether the record is worthy to listen to or not judging by just one song off ‘Impossible Possible’.

So it’s hard to characterize the tracks separately as they all are of equal value and mainly written according to the same scheme. You won’t find any ballads as such here, that’s why, be ready to enjoy wild energy. But such speed starts bothering by the end of the album and you may become eager to find a couple of slow songs at least however only ‘Seconds’ shows signs of melancholy at the beginning yet it doesn’t last too long. I’d like to mark out the tracks I liked most of all, namely ‘Voice of the Voiceless’ for its lyrics and ‘Wheels Keep Turning’ thanks to its melody. As for the potential audience I guess the release will interest first those who like typical alternative rock. Besides the songs will do as a background music as well.
