An Albatross

We are the Lazer Viking

Popcorn! Popcorn! The repeated statement of popcorn was one thing that was sorely missed from this album. This was due to the fact that they keyboards for An Albatross sound like the organ that is used at baseball games in the olden days. Then all of a sudden, BAM! The pitcher pegs the hitter in the side. The man with the baseball bat rushes the pitcher! This scuffle and quote unquote anarchy that ensues, is the sound that is AN ALBATROSS! But you must also consider the third basemen, dressed in Viking attire, who begins to run in place with his hands thrown up towards the great blue sky. At times it's hard to take this band seriously, not that their sound sounds very serious, because band members used to be in a pop punk band a few years prior to the creation of An Albatross. Maybe they heard a Locust record and decided to change their image. The interludes are pretty interesting, "Wrgggggggrkyyyyyyy!!!" reminds me of a really happy seventh inning stretch. It's cool how they can have parts with blast beats and then have parts that are danceable. From the videos I've seen and the stories I've heard, I suggest seeing this band live because they put on an awesome show.
