Three - Revisions (2009)

The fifth album from this US band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, organ, synths, keyboards, piano, bass, mandolin, guitars and vocals.

A guest artist supplemented chapman stick on one of the songs.

I was not pleased about their previous album The End Has Begun. An album with too much teenybopper and indie rock.

My hope for Revisions was that the band started to compose some more worthy pieces of music.

The band is signed by Metal Blade of all labels although their music is nowhere near being metal. Odd. Very odd.

What jumps out of the speakers is that the band has taken one too many steps towards teenybopper, power pop and the indie rock genre. 

Although there are some more interesting stuff here inbetween the rather soppy teenybopper vocals, the band has again moved in the wrong direction.

A couple of decent songs saves this album from the turkey status. Besides of that, this album is pretty much a disaster and a non-event. Avoid.

1.5 points
