The Sounds – Something to Die For
Just gave this album the once-through. I think it will be the last time I ever listen to it, and I’m glad it was bought at a nice discount. I’m one to stretch out the palate, as much as I can, in the effort to get into new things. I liked a couple of the Sounds previous releases, so I figured I’d take a blind look at what they were up to. Apparently, it’s extra synthy pop/rock these days – it’s not a good look for them. I didn’t hear anything redeemable at all. I spent 3.99. I wasted most of it.
Grade: C-. I liked the first track, “It’s So Easy”, “Yeah Yeah Yeah”,as well as the title track/initial single. But other than that, it’s not horrible, just not a generally memorable record. Even those songs aren’t tracks I will come back to often, unless it’s for some mix.
