Novice: Interrupting The Scenery
This CD starts off with a very catchy song. The two different vocals really make this first song jump out. The pop-hooks drag you in as you listen, but this isn't stereotypical pop-punk / emo music. The lyrics may be emotional and talk about ex-girlfriends and broken hearts, but there is no talentless singer in this band. The first song is solid all the way through and is followed by a pretty solid, yet simila, second song. The third song is by far a standout, The Distance, an areana rock style song. A killer guitar intro leads into quite possibly the catchiest song I have ever heard. Then followed by another great song, which starts with catchy vocals, and is followed by an array of solid lyrics. They finish the rest of the cd with upbeat fast past guitar and hard hitting drums. The guys created a sound which is pure Novice, and is unique. The choruses don't dissapoint and after hearing a few are stuck in your memory for a while. Smooth lyrics are complimented with occassional screams that leave you wanting more. The guitar on this album is very creative and the bass lines are awesome. Overall a very solid CD that is sure to be on repeat for many months to come.
