The City and Skyway

Everything Looks Worse In Black And White

Being an objective reviewer, I will try and ignore the grossly overboard hyperbole contained in their press sheet. But this is fairly serviceable post-emo rock release from the mid-west. The guitars have flashes of hooks here and there throughout this record. The lyrics seem to have a very focused target on doctors, drugs, and the lack of healing in this world. Not sure if one of the band members works in a hospital or not. “Soaked and Numb” does a good job of presenting this worldview for the masses. I noticed that some of the members are really into the Big Guy upstairs too. Not that there is anything wrong with that. My tip is to embrace that and take it to the next level. If you’re going to give a shout-out to “The Blessed Trinity” in your liner notes, then maybe it’s time to rework your stage style into more of a Stryper type reality. Think it over, it may work wonders!
